This time of year is so very busy for me and the studio - even more so now that I've decided to lead a planning day workshop in December. I've been getting up super early to give me some more time to get everything done. Seeing the beauty of the dawn and experiencing the quiet is a plus!
I went through my Value Village purchases and put together this little diagram with images of them. I also did this after the summer 50% off sale. I'm still sorting out why I do this, especially because it felt like too much work (that phrase always reminds me of when Mom would say "That sounds too much like work!"), but I still felt compelled to do it. I think it's actually a way of trying to figure out which clothes work for me as I can look back on it later, but then again I can figure that out by what goes in the laundry week after week because I choose to wore it. I know I like documenting stuff, so it could be that in a 'time-stamp' kind of way. There were other things I would probably rather do, but... I did this. I'm wrestling with something here and it's clear I haven't quiet figured that out. Anyway - one thing is that it's a way I can share what I bought! So there is that :)
Reg and I heard that there was going to be a "conversation with George Takei" at the theatre downtown so we got tickets and when we showed up we were upgraded to the sixth row!!! We felt like we had won the lottery. It was such an inspiring evening. So many people graciously went up to the mic and shared their appreciation for everything he has done on so many levels. It was an evening of education, story sharing, the civil rights movement and gratitude. Amazing.
