I am sitting here listening to Hotel California. Great song.
"Some dance to remember...some dance to forget!"
Lately I have been dancing to forget! My brain is so much in overdrive I am just lost. Life is good. For real. And I have soooo much inspiration for fibery things because I have been in different places with different people...and we know that totally inspires me to create art.
I want to play fiber all the time. I miss it so much - I mean, I probably dye and spin more than your average person but for a girl who's life has been wool for SOOO long, it feels strange to not work every single minute of the day when I am not at work.
Today I pulled some beautiful locks and Optim from a dye pot and just sighed. I love dyeing and playing with wool so much. It keeps me sane.
One strange thing that has been happening is that I have been doing some phone interviews and not all of them have been here in Pensacola. Eek. I mean, I haven't ALWAYS lived here...just the past ten years or so. And I definitely have not always loved it here during that time. But I have been happy. And well, it is kinda paradise.
So I am looking around me with new eyes. I imagine I will end up staying here but yeah, a girls gotta work. I would be HollyEQQ full time in a SNAP but yeah, damn health insurance.
That means not as many shows and not as many field trips as some of my counter-parts - who are all FREAKIN at MDWS and making me super jealous. So I guess watching all of them get ready to go makes me a little sad...but then I remember how hard I have worked and how happy doing what I do makes me. I don't want to give it up and I have to have a day job so I need to keep a nice balance. One HUGE thing that I miss right now is writing here. I used to have access from work which allowed me to write more whenever I thought of something - mostly on my lunch break. Now, if I am writing here it takes away from my fiber time, which bites. I still do it mind you...just not as prolifically as I have in the past. But I try. So much has happened in the time that I have been HollyEQQ. It is crazy. Some days I go back and read the five or six years of my art journal and I am AMAZED.
Ok, enough sap - lets get onto the pictures!
This was a beautiful windy day - and this NUT went windsurfing. CRAZY.
Me Studying at the beach....
I took this picture when I was doing a phone interview. Hilarious huh? Not bad surroundings.
And some recent yarns. I have been enjoying spinning.
SO that is it. Oh and the dyepots have been good to me this week. I hope that I will be able to update one night this week. That would great.
Oh and this is my friends TDK's friend. Cool song and GREAT shots of the beach.
Like I have said before - this is where we pray, party, marry, bury, celebrate, grieve, relax, and renew. It means so much more to us than just sand and salt. I think he really gets it.
