Friendship bracelets went wonderfully. I decided that the blog was not nessesary as for last month so i forewent it.

This month i have been making a map-a-day.

I will get those up soon. I have limited access to a scanner as it is summer and too beautiful outside.

Making plans for future months

stranger narrative-a-day
take a Polaroid of a stranger and write there imagined story

this has been suggested a lot and for some reason its seeming like a better idea every day

I am open to suggestions

"lesson of the moth"

Given to me by Elodie Via email with the following context:

"Archy is a cockroach with the soul of a poet...

'expression is the need of my soul,' declares Archy, who labored as
a free-verse poet in an earlier incarnation. At night, alone, he dives
furiously on the keys of Don Marquis' typewriter to describe a
cockroach's view of the world, rich with cynicism and humor. It's
difficult enough to operate the typewriter's return bar to get a fresh
line of paper; all of Archy's dispatches are written lowercase, and
without punctuation, because he is unable to hit both shift and letter
keys to produce a capital letter."
