A Statement Of Why Not

It’s been a long time since I have written or even updated people on where we are with the book. Well it’s coming. We have gotten behind because of life. But it’s not over yet. We are not done yet. Fin is coming. So where are we? We are at the final editing stage and then will be kicking off a fundraiser to sell the book and have them printed and to build a well! I am so excited for that and cannot wait!

So, what has been going on lately? Well last month I was siting at my computer looking through the book and a conversation I had with a friend came to mind. One of my good friends felt that it would be extremely fitting for me to enter some of Sarah’s work from the book into this year Art Prize in Grand Rapids. I did not know how to feel about that or if that would even be a good idea.  There still are so many emotions tied to Art Prize. It was something that I once was interested in. Something that was fun and different. Now I feel indifferent about it. It does not have the same thrill as it once did. It seems empty and awkward because something is missing from it. Still, while looking through our work I decided to enter in to Art Prize. I don’t know why. While I was sitting there thinking over it just seemed right. The statement of why not came to mind. Why not put her work in something you loved, something she was excited about, something that meant a lot to her? Why not? So, I registered, uploaded some of the pages from the book and well…now we wait till a venue picks the art to be put in their venue to show. It’s an odd thing to think about. About how almost two years ago she had art shown there. It odd to think that it has almost been two years and that this project will be done and we all will continue moving forward. Moving onward in our lives. I still have not gotten in to art prize, and either way I’m not worried about it. I am only worried about finishing this book, printing it, and doing something to benefit other with it. So as we wait for the finish of the book, I have posted some pictures here on the site that maybe shown in Art Prize this year. I hope you enjoy them. There are so many more that I can’t wait for you all to see. Thank you for reading, being patient, and being extremely supportive.
