after spending a day (a day that seemed more like a decade) of paperwork (thus the decade) (and i’m not finished yet, i have hours to go before i sleep), i crave the life of a simple 9-square, though i can’t help but wonder if less paperwork really does equal simple or if it just seems that way because i hate paperwork more and more every month. wait . . . does living the simple life mean doing less of things i despise and more of things i enjoy? could it really be that simple or is that kinda’ like thinking living life on the prairie in a dugout was simple? either way, today’s altar cloth is a simple 9-square. (a.k.a. wishful thinking.)

    This is the second invocation of simplicity I’ve been given today. Is someone trying to tell me something?

    ugh. i am on the same paperwork treadmill… also trying to figure out how to simplify.
    paperwork to artists is like poetry to accountants.

      Love your analogy. It’s so true. Can you imagine enjoying this????? I just want to take photos and stitch and twirl.
