So, my really rather new laptop needs serious tech support and I'm not going to be able to get that done for a few weeks because I'm going to be camping in Canada then sashaying around Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City and then various parts of Maine.
I have other gadgets with me that will let me read blogs and look at flickr, but as far as me posting anything? I think that's not going to happen until I've reached Burlington Vermont, where I'm staying for a bit. Basically, July 15th at the earliest. Sad.
Oh well, hopefully when I come back, I'll have photos of moose. I'm dying to see one in person.
And maybe I'll have some more cathedral windows.
Good ol' hand-sewing project!
In the meantime, if you need something to chew on, chew on this:
"My father’s an artist and I remember talking to him about wanting to be an artist and saying to him if I can do art that changes people over time, shows them something for a second or a minute, changes their mind about something, that would be really worthwhile." --Phil Toledano via The 99 Percent.
I don't like the distinction that craft produces "useful" objects and art produces "not useful"and I love this sentiment about the use of art...to change people, to show them something, to open them up and get them thinking.
