I’ve decided that the only things I’m going to buy that I don’t really need are going to be things that make me happy. That sounds like a silly statement, and I don’t really go out and shop a ton, but I’m sure there are things that I purchase (like chapstick) simply because they are there.
Two new books are headed my way, and I’m excited: Amy Wilson’s book and Kate Durbin’s chapbook. Amy is an amazing artist that I met through a good friend, and I’m excited not only because I get to support Amy, but also because I get to have Amy’s work out here in Seattle. Kate’s book is just breathtaking, and Dancing Girl Press has such a wonderful chapbook series that I’m overjoyed to support it.
I love things made by friends. I’m spoiled- my friends are artists and musicians and writers, and I get to experience all of it. A good friend just sent me his book and I devoured it in a day. How did I become friends with such amazing people? They are beautiful.
