8 + 5 = 13

13 Days before the Fellowship deadline....
Saturday October 27th - Saturday November 3rd
For the next 8 days I will be busy putting together the work I have been creating over the last year. This work is a culmination of pieces that have been formulating throughout most of my adult life. There were several items that were collected and saved for many years with an inner knowledge that they had an important role in my creative future. My mothers ironing board was one, I have held on to it since her death in 1988. Something like 25 Glass Aunt Jamima syrup bottles: large and small sizes... (Mothers and daughters).... Originally I envisioned the A.J. Bottles sitting on top of the ironing board, however after becoming a mother and raising a child of my own, the ironing board is now upside down hanging from the rafters!! There was also a life ring from a boat, but somewhere along the way, I doubted myself and threw it away.... Now I have to buy one. The life ring is part of the house of transformation. This is the house that will still be work in progress at the time of the Fellowship deadline.
The House of Chaos and the House of Calm meditaive reflection will be the 2 pieces complete.
As for overtime at work... It is time to focus on my deadline now... So ... I will have to get brave and speak up for myself. Right now I am on my way to collect my tools and get to work on my own work... it is a beautiful sunny day, and I am very happy!!!
The last 5 days before the Fellowship deadline will be used to finish the paper work and create an electronic disk of images.
