Previously to Presently

It’s hard to let go of things we love. For some reason we’re told this is a good thing. Well I disagree. I attach great personal value to my bits and pieces so you can imagine how I felt when my beloved winter coat started disintegrating.

In an acknowledgement of the value of the memories embedded in the fabric, the sense of familiar comfort and the recognition of a finely crafted garment, I created “Re-Worn”.

This has been a very positive exercise in holding on.

What a beautiful photograph of Jesika!I bet I know who took it.It was Andrew.I've been letting go of my old glad rags at the markets. It's interesting to see who wants to wear my old skin.
