Have you noticed? For instance, music, pictures, siberia and reindeer, certain textiles, siberia, reindeer...
And I've been stuck on this quilt. I was frusterated today because I felt like my pictures weren't doing it justice. You just have to be with it. In person. I love the fabrics used, the juxtapositions, the overall graphic quality, the fantastic fading, the fact that the pieces were hand-stitched together. I put a couple of these together and in the shop today.
But my question to you is, does the fact that I love vintage quilts make me a Granny? I mean, I'm not 20 but I'm not 80. Not that there's anything wrong with either. I'm just saying, why am I not into, like, something mod and you know, current? Insecurities revealed. And why am I even asking myself this question?
And on a different but somewhat related topic, there's a line in the Joanna Newsom song, Baby Birches, which goes "well, I wish I could take every path..." It gives me a lump in my throat (side note-I hate the word lump) everytime I hear it. This is related to the above because....well, because, I feel myself and, holy carp, SEE myself getting older. And I'm old enough now to look back and have some regrets and see the directions I might have gone but did not. And people, I DO wish I could take every path. Mostly because there is so much to do and to see. And isn't that just the stinkingest and rottenest and most beautiful thing about life. That you just get one.
