"Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life."
We got crafty the other day, Megan and I. Having a crafting partner was a nice change, as usually I'm left to my own with anything in the creative realm.
She made some string art for her college house and I made a crayon canvas for my classroom.
Let's not kid ourselves. I mean, I'm not the least bit jealous that she gets to jet off to college to live with her sorority sisters while I get to move into a very dusty, asbestos filled classroom.
No, not one hint of hostility or jealousy here.
I looked forward to our day for a full week, continually thinking and planning how it would be, what would happen, and how the projects would turn out.
I'm pretty sure that we impressed the heck out of ourselves. It's not everyday that two Duquesne grads are seen lugging planks of wood and wielding hammers.
Or, for that matter, connecting a hairdryer to an extension cord and turning the old Conair on full blast while sitting under an umbrella on the patio.
What a great day. One of my summertime favorites.
