I am walking the city, doing my thing, enjoying myself as I go. I prepare for a full day of Playful Fabric Printing. My dyes are mixed, my stamps, stencils and TFax screens are ready. I will begin printing as soon as I get there. In the meantime, it is Thursday and I like to do self care on Thursday mornings.
The above is a You Can’t Resist This! Soy wax batik sample.
Today is another dance in public day. I must say, dancing in public is a public service. It is a smile generator!
Last week I was dancing in the subway. Two men were listening to big bubble headphones. The tall black man, who was so stylishly dressed, took his ear piece off to ask what I was listening to. I told him, ‘Shamir. Go buy everything he’s done’.
I asked what he was listening to, Beyoncé’s Lemonade. He was sheepish when he told me he was going to class and hadn’t listened to the music yet. I asked if he was taking a singing or dancing class, his response- no, a Black Lives Matter class. Now I want to purchase the album!
There was a scrawny white man wearing big bubble headphones too. He took his ear piece off to ask what I was listening to and I told him too. When I asked in return, he told me he was listening to Howard Stern. (Double YAWN), no dance possibilities there.
David and I are going to our first silent rave this weekend. 4 DJ’s, everyone wears headphones and dances. This means if we want to talk, we will be able to hear each other! Pinch me! This sounds like heaven on earth. And! Disassociated dancing!
Hey!! Have you preorder a copy of Playful Fabric Printing? Please do. I am cooking up some fun over here and I want you to play with me. I plan to create a teaser today! Stay tuned
