So many things in my life are one-offs. I’m always on to the next thing, always taking on new ideas, projects, moving in new directions. I love it and wouldn’t change for the world, but it can be challenging to learn so many new tricks. I can see the practical advantage to repeating oneself for decades, but the concept is not for me. So the fact that I am doing a second volume of CGB is stunning. It’s a miracle if I make a matched set of EARRINGS.
Speaking of earrings, I’m still wearing them (it looks like that moment in Paris, captured above, was exactly the right moment for the assault to succeed) and I still attribute the success of the rather brutal and spontaneous street-cafe repiercing to the glare that Jean Power gave my earlobes, daring them to make trouble.
Now if I could ONLY FIND the beautiful gold bows and arrows that I bought in Paris that day.
I must have tucked them somewhere very, very safe.
I’m looking forward to Susan Blessinger and Teresa Sullivan arriving today, and Gail Moore tomorrow. What fun we will have…
