Well recently I have fallen into a time warp of sorts and have been as much immersed in 70s nostalgia as one living in the 2000s can be. I've had one of those lifes where many things tend to come full circle. The good thing about that is when goods things show up to remind you what you have accomplished even if its just growing mentally and spiritually. Not religiously, spiritually. Sometimes people that helped shaped your process come swirling through the vortex.
Sometimes memories that you need to jar you come through. I had one this week when my sister reminded me that as very young children we took the bus to Hollywood on our own (lived in L.A.) so I could buy beads to make us bracelets with our names on it. She reminded me of this to let me know that I'm doing something I've always done and loved doing, create. And I so needed that peeps! I couldn't thank her enough for that. And for some reason it made me ecstatic but it also brought tears. Tears of comfort I think. Another small validation of the dream of sorts.
Okay up and away, on another note, sometimes fun stuff comes through too! For some reason I have a growning collection of Tye Dye. Don't laugh. You know if you lived through the 60s and 70s you at some point wore something with tye dye. Well I still do. Can't explain. Its just happy clothes for me! I've even taken to teaching others to Tye Dye without a sink! I love the color infusion into my day each time I put one of these babies on. Not to mention they are great conversation starters. People always want to know where I got it, or tell me fun stories of their own Tye Dyes or just ask me what the hell I'm thinking LOL. And I tell them I'm thinking 'Life without Color' would suck! 'Color makes me happy and brightens my perspective and outlook'. 'Color makes the world go round!
Okay you get it! I've just mentally planned my day. A trip to the Antique Mall here in town. Memories and inspiration all in one place. I love color and I'm blessed to be able to experience it. Everyday! Have a colorful day and great adventures! Muah!
Here's my vid on making your own Tye Dye without the sink!
