"I have lost the Post-its or can’t quite make out what my fragmented notes refer to. Details escape me, and sometimes it seems as if the harder I try to hold on to them, the more blurry they become.

That used to drive me crazy. Shame on me, I thought, to gather so many stories, only to let them go like water through cupped palms."


Alisha Gorder, for the NYT. Read the full piece here.

A customer dropped this article off for a coworker of mine. I snuck it out of it's envelop and photocopied it. It's been sitting on my studio desk ever since and I finally wrote out the above quote and hung it on my wall. The quote is quite out of context, you should really read this full piece of writing. But I like what it says about memory, about trying to collect stories, and trying to hold onto them. I like the rest of the article too. It made me feel very thankful for my day job and all of the lives I've been a part of in a small way, and all of the flower shop stories of my own I've collected.

Somewhat unrelated is the image, which is of some experiments for my newly instated zine club. Which I swear I will talk about in more detail later.
