You've GOT to check this out!
I wonder if I'm so attracted to Maira's work because it is incredibly inspiring [and there is no doubt about that : it is! it is!] or because it makes me feel a little more normal. I struggle with the feeling 'normal' part sometimes. Take a conversation I all too often have with others:
Q (others) : What did you do today?
A (me) : I drew my cereal.
Yeaaaaah. So it makes me feel good when the same things that stand out to me stand out to others. She's cool...so perhaps I'm not as big of a dork as I think I am. I guess it's human nature.
I have a feeling I may delete this post later. Too self-effacing. I feel like I'm in junior high again...and I swore I'd never go back.
