I am convinced that the ocean inspires creativity.
My father finds an old photo album in the garage from his mid 20s. The pictures are yellowed and the plastic is torn, but the Montana badlands look more breath-taking than ever. He tells me about his dog, Seven (who he got on 7-7-77), his neighbors in the small white house who don't use soap to clean their frying pans - the man with the beard who was the artist and the wife who was so, so beautiful, and how they moved to Israel with their daughter. He told me about the people in the pictures, and I saw the ones of my mom drinking Irish coffee in her flight attendant outfit, and her sister on that bike... and I knew they couldn't stay in boxes anymore.
Thus began my pinteresting crafts... :)
