someone recently pointed out to me that much of the way that i work is very childlike- intuitive. like a child wondering “what if?”. for as long as i can remember it’s been that way. curiosity gets the better of me and i have to follow it down to some sort of conclusion. it also has something to do with my incessant and overwhelming desire to “do it myself” and to be independent as a result of some very serious history. the fact that i like process so much i think stems from the way it can relieve stress and anxiety. hence why most of my work is mostly craft and not art (please, let’s not get into THAT). i’ve been pretty crafty since i was a child.
i had a recent conversation with Wendy, who was interviewing me for an article and i think i ended up figuring out as much about myself as she did about me for the article. some of it we both had surmised but many pieces were falling into place over the course of the conversation. suffice it to say, it’s going to be an interesting article. more on that later.
i know my recent FB updates to the “statusphere” have been a little obtuse and random but that’s just me especially as of late. the usual topics of beauty, education, art, and how i fit into the picture if at all anymore. just feeling a little lost i guess.
then there is more of this. at least they got their website tagline right- STEALS and deals. actually, it’s a wordpress.org blog that leads to an indian website selling shit and ads, of course. so more work for me to get my pics pulled down. i already removed the option to embed my vids on external sites so now you have to use the link option instead. it really gets to me to see this when i am working as hard and fast as i can around here. enough whining and complaining- or i might be tempted to just pull the plug on the whole darn thing.
thanks Dar, for looking out for me. some days globalization works for me, some days not.
all right. getting back to reality (or is it the illusion? getting harder to tell these days). have some camp fire kids coming over tomorrow for an indigo workshop, a private appointment on wednesday, and a peddlers fair on saturday. that’s where i cut up all the scarves and silks that haven’t sold and have been passed over this past year into cutter pieces-put them out there for other uses and clear the decks. in between, just the usual dyeing and photography.
sorry, no photos again today- just not in the mood.
