(This needs a caption....)
Jennifer has been missing in my house since around October. She wasn't in her tote bag in my closet. I was really worried that somehow with all of my reducing clutter and belongings that she had inadvertently been sent to a thrift store. (Yes, she needs a tag that says who and where to return her to. ) She showed up yesterday in a box of fabric and other things--most of which I decided to get rid of. It was a joyous moment to find her.
I decided I needed a picture of Jennifer, Indigo, and Juno. Jeddy had the car, therefore, I needed to capture them together playing in my yard. The clothes line would work. I went out there and hanging on the line still was the bra I threw into the rain puddle a week ago, she'd been hanging out during several rain storms, sunshine, fog, wind. She still had a smile going though. I walked over to take her down and I saw a spider web and I started shooting. It wasn't until I had gone back to the clothes line to take her down that I saw the spider. I stepped back and focused on the spider, zooming in a little more than in this foto. Immediately, the wind kicked in. I got two blurred images before the spider disappeared.
The wind, the evening light, the circumstances weren't right to get a great foto of Jennifer, Indigo, and Juno. I'll try again later in the week.
After I found Jennifer, Jeddy and I began discussing whether I should send her out into the world again. We began to discuss the possibility of an art show featuring the Sisterhood, with maybe 1/3 of the show featuring Jennifer and her travels. We talked about my bucket list and I realized that this is something I really want to do. I am scared to send her out again after the last woman who sponsored her kept her for 15-months and only returned her after I posted her name in several places on facebook with my plea to help get Jennifer back. I now know of three people who contacted her and paid to get Jennifer returned. If I arrange a gallery showing, I would have to know that no one would keep her longer than 10-days before sending her off to her next sponsor. It would be extremely important that her journey kept moving. I would schedule the show in about 15-months. There are so many possibilities.
Would anyone reading this be interested in having Jennifer visit them? Even if you have had her before......
