eat, pray, love....and maybe sew

I found this book at the library before I headed out for the sunshine state where I'm spending the week with my parents. And I have been doing just what it says : Eating, Praying, and Loveing the time I have with my folks.

This woman talks about Depression and Loneliness like they are detectives hiding out and trying to trip her up. How they catch up with her, and interogate her.

"They come upon me all silent and menacing like Pinkerton Detectives, and they flank me--Depression on my left, Loneliness on my right. They don't need to show me there badges. I know these guys very well. We've been playing this cat-and-mouse game for years now."

she tells them to go away but;

"Then they frisk me. They empty my pockets of any joy I had been carrying there. Depression even confiscates my identity; but he always does that.

Anyways its a great book for anyone who knows these thugs.

oh yes the sewing part. that just isnt happening. I packed half of my carry-on luggage with fabric, because I thought I would want to take advantage of this time to sew.(come to find out napping is the hobby of choice down here) Above is a project I started a year ago. Someday it will be a quilted world map with applique and embroidery.
