Journey to Nowhere

Last night I dreamt I was stuck driving a runaway motor home, I couldn't properly see out of the windows because it was up so high and I kept hitting power lines... it was a treacherous journey to nowhere... finally I woke up and when I went back to sleep I worked for a while (in my dreams) on neverending math equations and narratives that looped around and around before finally waking to the sound of the alarm.
You would think this meant I was feeling out of control, confused perhaps, but at least on the surface that is not the case at all. I really feel like things are well under control, perhaps I just needed a bit of adventure?

O Joyous Day!

So Sunday, instead of my normal hibernation I packed up suitcases of hats and vintage wear, scarves and the like and headed over to my friend Daynas house for a photo shoot. I swear it was all fun and no work... we shot for about 3 hours, in a variety of hats and then had a lunch of Hummus, feta, kalamata olives and cucumbers on feta, delicious! Daynas home is full of curiosities and I could go back and wander around for hours looking at everything and taking lots of pictures as I went. Dayna is an amazing artist and teacher and I have learned a great deal from her, so it was exciting to be in her space and get to see what inspires her. I got home and reworked some of the photos, some traditionally and some not so much as the one above - and had free rein to play away, after she debuts them on her own website I'll post more here...
