This one is practically electric!
I think it might be the picture though; I’m staring at it right now and it has an earthier quality to it. You’ll have to take my word for it…
Date: March 24, 2013
Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC
Person I would have sent it to: Casey C., another one of the good ones from elementary school. I should admit that after finishing middle school, I transferred to a private Jesuit school in Indianapolis. After that, I didn’t see many of these close friends again, even though I still lived in the same suburban/rural community. How crazy is it that in a town of… I honestly don’t even know how big that town was or the size of its population… Well, how crazy is it that in a *small-ish* town like that, I can disappear so easily from people that were a important part of my life? Or that they could disappear from mine?
(Because let’s face it, relationships- all of them- are two way streets, if we want to use a well-worn cliche.)
What happened to all these people?
But, if I had the chance, would I go back to that town? Would I want to get back in that *kind* of social situation again? Would it be right? Would I feel confident? Would I feel safe?
I didn’t then; why would it be any different now?
Music I listened to while sewing: Spotify. Again with that “Lounge” playlist. Its generality is probably a bit boring for you; maybe tomorrow, I’ll choose something more specific.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: I sometimes worry that I’m more than a little boring.
As I stayed in last night to piece together a sewing project for a friend… as I woke up at 7am to walk The Dog, after which I made coffee and pieced together this Crane, after which I took The Dog to the dog run, after which I went to the gym, after which I went to Starbucks, and now I’m here… typing this out. I’ll probably watch some Netflix tonight, keep piecing together my friend’s project (does it make it cooler if I say it’s a quilt that commissioned?), take The Dog for another walk, and sleep.
I worry that I don’t take advantage of New York. With a daily schedule like this, I could live anywhere.
I need to act more interesting. I can’t wait until my next project heats up.
Happy Sunday, everyone. Let’s hope the upcoming week is a good one for us all!
