|catching him with his book stuck behind his waistband - last fall|
|unedited, leaves - last fall|
|the library - last year|
so, i've got a list:
ypsi flea (sunday)
impression 5 (a really awesome kid's museum in lansing)
tackling the big bag of yarn in my closet
hosting a naked lady party? the box under my desk is overflowing
lights at the toledo zoo, and the toledo art museum/glass house
wayne county light fest
make sugar scrubs and chai concentrate for christmas presents
visiting with friends and family, but particularly a certain friend i've yet to meet in person, and my sister who gets in on christmas eve!
and of course, an ambitious list of books to read: on goodreads, because with no work and no school, we're down to our last few dollars until mid-january and books are free.
i also discovered an exhibit in chicago titled "write now: artists and letterforms." thank god it's there through april - i imagine this might be useful for my senior thesis, in terms of text functions and what craft can learn from composition (and vice versa). more and more, i feel like my focus is shifting towards narratives and their presence in various texts - academic, personal, image, art. in terms of community literacy, writing as a process and writing to learn, there are narratives present. these narratives are both a personal and social history, as preserved in some sort of thing that either looks like or functions as a text.
