it seems only fitting to use a favorite Japanese quote since i am currently wrapping up a Japanese themed piece for Lily Culver. My grandma passed away two weeks ago, and i had a wonderful time with family in California reminiscing and celebrating her life. now that the 'festivities' are over im still having a hard time with it, and somehow i can not admit that to anyone in person but have no problem announcing it over the internet? I grew up in her house until i was 12 so in a way it feels like losing a mother as well.... BUT im trying to focus on Miyazawa's quote, and it's not that i have a problem with being sad, it's that i need to keep reminding myself to do something with it.
quote of the moment:“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.”
so... i haven't been posting much but hopefully i will try and get more up here.
