October? What? Well I am throwing myself into the total eclipse and its surrounding energy with all the enthusiasm of a 5 year old. It promises transformation and all kinds of other mega forces so I say bring it on.
As this year moves into the last few months I don't know whether to admit defeat or take on full warrior stance. I think the latter.
I am always torn between making this blog the consumate professional arena for scarf pictures, lovers, wearers, creatives everywhere or setting up my soap box and shouting my experience from the rooftops.
The last few months have brought me to this point where I believe silence doesn't serve and it is time to come from under the bushel and shout pretty fucking loud. (Can I swear here??)
I have been looking for people to play with this year, not personally, but for Silk. The little, almost adolescent bird slash project needs coparenting. Working away in isolation is all well and good for a while but lets face it I am a very social creature, all this noble army-of-one stuff doesn't really cut it. Nope, the jig is up, time for playmates and creative teamwork. So I have been sitting back, avoiding anything that looks like my normal way of doing things and allowing the cosmic soup to take control. The result? Well so far an equal measure of amazing and not-so-much. I am choosing to focus on the amazing. An art show? Yes let's do it. New interested parties? Well lets see where those go. Road trips? Yes please. Video content? I am learning!
I feel. Yes indeed I do. I want to save the elephants, rid the world of litter, tell whoever keeps grafitti-ing in Griffith park to stop, read everything, walk for peace, hug all the animals, bring down Mc Donalds and all the other gross food corps who are poisoning our youth with sugar and shit. Live a clean life, spread love, talk to my parents everyday, save the planet and anything else that needs saving.
Suddenly the outspoken artist-child in me wants to be heard. Boy! After all these years of playing nice and being sensitive to just about everything and evryone I have decided to change hats.
I have a new hero in Fran Lebowitz (Thanks Kendall for suggesting I take a look....late to that party but better late than never) I want to be her friend. Ha!
So it looks as if I am going to be using this platform to tell it like it is. Not always pretty and not always a bed of roses but always honest and always human. Building Silk into the kind of business I see in my minds eye is a journey. I want to share all of it and not just the glossy parts.
Who knows, it might just inspire someone who is building their own vision to keep on keeping on.
