Hi, Gal Sal here, a salty Oregon Coasty who grew up in a town with a 100 people, making art in the family bar. I’d sit outside in the rain selling stinky clamshell earrings to the few tourists. My family owned the Sea Hag. Like most bars in small towns, it was the local community center. Everyone came to hear the stories of the town. Gossip yes, although always working together to help each other. We all were interconnected. Art kept me busy while mom worked. The real creative work was interaction with people.
