I don’t like writing grand statements of purpose. Can I just not? This is the place where I keep track of projects tried, lessons learned, and images I want to remember. That’s all.
My daughter says we live a handmade life. I guess so. Though by no means self-sustaining, we are pretty basic. I’ve always liked to learn how to make things and do things for myself. Now that my children are getting older, I’m indulging in these creative pursuits. So I find myself trying all sorts of experiments from the practical to the personal to the pointless as I try to piece together a beautiful life. Sometimes things fail; sometimes I flake out, but no one other than my grandmother is reading this anyway, so why not keep a journal- lite online?
Now I’m the “fresh,” new face of blogging. At least I appear fresh here, because my kids will be getting the faded and droopy me after school today.
