It has been over 3 weeks since I've been back. I am just beginning to feel like myself in the past 5 days or so. It took me a very long time to begin readjusting to the way of life in NY and LA/SF. NY was great to come back to, then LA work and SF for pure indulging to see my lovely family and friends. catching up with all the drama and the lives that I'm so intimately connected to. It was fun to research and put together some passages that I want to include in the site about origin, meaning, symbolism and description of the magical pieces that the women make in our project. Also it was fun to revisit all the pictures and short interviews of all the ladies that are contributing to Afghan Hands Inc.
September 11 was a bizarre day especially around my neighborhood and it was Nettie's 17th birthday. I was in such a daze that we didn't even really celebrate it. Nettie and Lucy are both blind as bats and Roman, still insane and stocking both Mishas (dog and human).
