Today’s Just One Of Those Days…

…but not like any day.

Because today I lost a friend.

Even though I last talked to her almost two months ago, she was always close to my heart.  Even though as one of my most awesome fiber teachers, who taught me how to think outside the box, think beyond black and white, and who never got over her losses in her personal life, would often find herself in a box she’d created for herself out of her own fears and insecurities – and to whom I did say again and again, you’re beautiful inside and out, no matter what anyone says…for it forced me to see how beautiful I was as well.  For aren’t we all…

And even though there were times I wanted to throttle her for saying or doing things that weren’t exactly politically correct, she was still as cool as beans.

That is, if beans can ever be cool.  

To the woman who taught me not to be afraid of color and ingenuity and being yourself.  Rest in peace, dearest Janice.

  1. I’m sorry for your loss. It’s a mark of a great teacher — to be able to encourage others without feeling the need to be being perfect oneself …

I'd love to hear what you think!
