Where do I belong????
( Here are some new pieces I have added to the shop , however they are sold!!! )
Often, I find myself in a crowded coffee shop , at the park or even at my sons school and I am the only person who is not deep in concentration over their mini typewriter. Yes I know this is what they call "texting". I am in my late thirties and somehow I have missed the boat on the latest technology. Now I have always been a bit stubborn, and I chose not to take computer graphics in school and I still have a romantic view of letter writing. I still need that physical connection with things. I still believe that you can not truly replace film in photographs despite the digital ease. Am I the only one standing still in time?? My hands really show the love I have for paper and texture and process. Perhaps that is why I love using vintage letters and books in my work. The things left behind in this world really tell the stories of all that have touched it. Yes I have been able to start a blog and I am more than surprised that I can manage my etsy store........ I am content with my knowledge ........ there is nothing better than that exchange in energy to feel truly connected to the world.
