As you can see from the title of this post I am still using random shuffle on my IPod as titles for my posts. I like the unpredictable energy of the process and often find the title chosen by the IPod gods to be appropriate to the post.
I haven't been in posting type mood as of late. I think I am seeking silence, internal and external so I can collect my thoughts and just process. Like the rest of the world, I was shocked by the recent passings of Ed, Farrah and Michael; especially, the later. Anytime a person of cultural fixture passes a certain shock wave hits regardless if you were a fan or not. I know for myself, MJ was a huge part of the cultural landscape of my youth as he defined and contributed to so many elements of art, music, trends, etc... With his passing, this particular time flooded my mind with memories of my childhood and how his music hallmarked certain events such as my 8th grade graduation dance where Thriller was played over and over again. Whether you were a fan or not, loved or hated him, MJ definitely left his signature on the world.
Despite my lack of writing, I have been able to create here and there. Here are a few images...
Although she is not dressed, my second attempt at making a paper clay doll was much more successful than my first.
A basket full of hand sewn and stuffed hearts before...
I painted them.
Stay tuned as I will be offering an etsy sale in the next few days.
