monday, monday

craft fair was a bust- you can check out the crochet blog for that. nice weather and the fact that there were other fairs around on the same day- well, apparently, it was the worst fair in the past 5 years. figures. so, i will regroup and get back to creating new stuff. i am really hoping to move some inventory out to make room for new. fingers crossed.

going to be another nice day here. i still haven't figured out why people stress themselves out. too many people do- and i realize that's vague- i don't have the time to go into it in this post. but stay tuned...... or not ;)

Betmo, you have changed. Hope it is a positive one longterm.

I guess it comes down to survival really. We fight against the reality of the world and it responds by crushing us.

Perhaps I should take up art. Nah, writing is my forte for good or ill.

Take care.

david, i suppose i have :) there isn't anymore outrage left within me because i see all too clearly the power structure- not just here but globally. those folks have pulled the strings for a long time and are becoming increasingly hamfisted because resources are thinning and there will be unrest amongst the so far docile unwashed. our entire global system is so intertwined it would be next to impossible to untangle and because we did this- our entire system of life is unsustainable and ruinous. what folks aren't being told- we can't fix it. we have ruined the planet completely and it's just a matter of time before we, and most other life on the planet, go extinct.

but no one wants to hear that unhappy bit of news- so, i crochet instead :)

At times I feel exactly the way you do, Betmo. It seems impossible to unscramble the eggs.

Yet no matter how much despair I experience I can't allow myself to give up because to do so then makes me feel my life has been a exercise in futility (which of course it has been).

It seems I'm destined to tilt at windmills forever until death sets me free.

Crazy, eh?

I bet your works would do wonderfully around the Northwest Arkansas area, craft paradise around these here parts...
