Dear Molly, One summer your dad decided to visit some weird places. He took you and your sister to Centralia, PA and the Palace of Gold in West Virginia. The Palace of Gold was bizarre but Centralia bit into you and has not let go. You have had a thing for mine fires ever since. You learned not long ago (maybe 2009?) that there is a mine fire in New Straightsville, OH. So you moved to a place with a local mine fire, one of the first, in fact. So now what? You have to make some art about these mine fire – two of them connection your childhood and your adulthood, a ribbon of highway in between. But you don’t know where to start. Maybe it is (those) highways stretching between PA and Ohio, between hometown and fiery mine. Some stitches, some maps.
