"making beauty,and making it well, is a way to FIGHT against all the pain suffering injustice ugliness madness sadness evil in the world. it's tipping the scales as much as you possibly can, because we know the crap will always be there but perhaps we can edge it out if we fill up the place with beauty." (from journal 38) this is why i make these crazy little books that fill up with my life and teach me lessons. to make beauty and to sort out my crazy little head, spill it open and sort it out. i'm getting ready to let some of them out into the world, and boy is that an overwhelming chest-tightening feeling at times.
