The dilemma with this week’s WOYWW is do I show what I am REALLY working on, or do I create a false narrative? What I am REALLY working on I started last week, well before the current situation in the USA developed. Now, I have never been shy about where I stand on the political spectrum (well left of centre) but I am struggling with sharing, and in what detail, my current project, given the diagnosis of the President.
I’d love to be able to strike just the right tone, but the fact of the matter is that while I hope for a full recovery, I equally hope for a full recovery for the country. So for better or worse, here is my current project – loosely titled In His Own Words, although I have not finished the cover page and that could change – on my desk:
I am also working on two additional pages, one built around “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” and one as yet undecided. I might have to wait for another day to see if any recent quote moves me.
Once the situation resolves, hopefully with a good outcome for both the President and the First Lady, I will feel more comfortable sharing these very negative (but I stress, true and factually accurate, as much as anything can be in the age of disinformation!) pages.
The binding will be the back-to-back method, which I also did a fair few years back, and I still quite like that way, as it is simple and effective. I am also looking for a good way to share SVG cutting files. I used Dropbox eons ago but not sure if that is still the best way – I have some nice files that will work well for art journals, but I can’t share them on WordPress – or at least not in the current free .Com version. Watch this space!
And, as ever, Happy WOYWW!!
