I've been lazy lately - stuck in the hum drum of my 9-6 "so I can eat" job. I lost myself to the travel, the long hours, the stress - it seemed to suck me dry. I miss me - my creative life; taking pictures, making jewelry, smiling - mostly I miss seeing the world through creative eyes.

I became one of the 'dead people' as I call them. You know what I mean - one of those people who simply plod through life not embracing the simple every day joy that happens.

We visited a quilt show at The Park Avenue Armory on Saturday. Michael took this picture. I'm not sure what I was more impressed with the creativity of hundreds of women whom during the past 3 centuries created these lovely usable pieces of art, the woman who has collected all of them and more or the artistry of the display. I was overwhelmed with awe.
