A New Friend.
Isn't she lovely? This one arrived by USPS in a brown envelope yesterday. I had just gotten home from taking some produce to EmmaClaire. I had a migraine starting up and this was in my mailbox. I smiled. I cried. I took migraine drugs and slept for four hours. This morning, the first thing I did was take pictures of her.
I have been very discouraged lately. I've thought that it may be time to "Let GO" of the Sisterhood Project. I feel that maybe I'm the only one that really "supports" or enjoys it. I have had a few people (besides my kids) send me BLING! for Dorothy, but at this rate not enough to completely cover her over the next year. I've pinned a couple pieces of BLING! on her that are for Jennifer or Indigo or Juno. But Dorothy needs her own BLING! I've decided that Dorothy will only go with me to appointments and have her image made when someone, besides me, decorates her with new BLING! Otherwise, she'll sit on my dresser in her ziplock baggie..... unadorned.
Until yesterday no one had sent me a bra to photograph. Both Emma and Jeddy bought me bras at thrift stores, because they know this silly project gives me something to do and that the possibility of a gallery showing is on my bucket list. I need encouragement to continue. I need to know that other people want the Sisterhood to live on. Again, I'll keep taking a bra or two or three with me on my walks and mini road-trips. For now. Yet, I get bored with shooting the same old bras. I really would appreciate some new subjects to play with and pose in photos.
I need to be doing something and I am limited in what I can do. I need to feel that my six years of college were not for naught. I still have two classes to complete. I want to have the art show that was to be part of my final art project. I want to be remembered when I am gone and I want to tell my story. If I reach out and touch one person because of this, then I will have accomplished so much.
Jennifer is in Switzerland and I don't worry about her. Jennifer will continue to travel for as long as I have people wanting to host her. Currently, she has three stops after her Grand Tour. I need at least 12-more hosts, before she retires.
