I’ve had a lot of flight imagery coming up in the last year or so. Absurd, silly flight. The kind of flight a butterfly has: veering off all over the place and only vaguely in control. It occured to me that while Robot has attempted flight many times and many ways, it has never succeeded. It probably never will.
Raincoat Girl and the Flying Fish, on the other hand, fly all the time with the greatest of ease.
I think all the changes in the last year–going to NCECA, having more succesful craft fairs, getting picked up by more shops, even the move from the cupboard to the side studio–have made me more optimistic about my business. (And more harried, and definitely more hustled. But in a good way.)
