So, let's start again, OK?
“Creative people can live with anxiety, even though a high price may be paid in terms of insecurity, sensitivity, and defenselessness for the gift of ‘divine madness.’” (Rollo May)
Well, creativity, Ms. Squirrel is on a temp hold this weekend while I am bombarded by Matthew of the Hurricane family. It's 8 PM and we have just begun with 50 mph winds and rain coming sideways. i know it will end but we are in for a miserable night with rampant power outages, no AC, and a light deficit until 7 or so. The new hurricane house is safe and cozy- the windows are so thick I can't even hear the storm out there, but I know it's there and it's pretty scary, We are still heading for Cat 4 with a rumor of Cat 5 for a point. Hopefully this won't happen but we simply gotta deal with whatever we gotta deal with! With a flashlight in the pocket and a 3 day supply of water for everybody! More for the doggies since they aren't interested in ice tea.
I'm sorry now I didn't bring home the collage projects from the studio but I really thought I'd be too busy to do any of it. Instead I'm knitting again and going pretty speedy since I can't dance and it's too wet to plow, as they say! And it is.
ART PART will be quick tonight. I have to get dishes done and things put away I will trip on wandering around in the dark. I want this to be over NOW!
First a playground alligator, then an entire locomotive, and now artist Olek reveals an entire two-story house covered roof to floorboards in pink crochet. This new yarn-bombed installation currently stands in Kerava, Finland where Olek worked with a team of assistants to stitch together huge panels of crochet that envelop every inch of this 100-year-old house.
See y'all tomorrow when we can hopefully be safe and dry, even if not until evening!
