I cannot seem to move forward on the arm construction, I keep putting that off. It means I am not committed to it at this moment. I am committed to something else. Many other things at the moment. I am very involved with Detroit Fashion Week. I know, sounds too local. It is and it isn't. It is in the preliminary stages of great success. Why do I know this? The Design Director is Rebecca Clark, a Michigan re-plant from New York. Incredible energy, incredible business woman, incredibly professional. She has asked me to collaborate not only on Detroit Fashion Week, created by Brian Heath, but in the future for many many projects. It is the first time I have been excited in years and years about my work and my craft which has laid fallow for years and years. Not that I have not done work, I have, but MY work. The kind of work in which one is lost because of commitment, and desire. The kind of work that feeds ones soul in a way which nothing can feed the soul. It's a birth and I am crying because it is so beautiful, and it was such a long time coming.
