Since I’m still not one hundred percent well after the flu, I haven’t made any new collages and feel way behind.

The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself. Joan Didion
And lastly, here’s the line I used to have above my desk, not sure if I have shared this before:
Let me know if you want more pink polka dots and random photos from the life of…
