i was the unexpected guest today on sf girl by the bay .
i'm blushing a bit at the nice things that victoria had to say. and then i'm blushing at some of my silly answers to her questions. especially when i read martha's UE post or elisabeth's UE post or many of the other unexpected guests .
i do like seeing how someone else puts my life/photos together, though. and victoria is a master stylist....
above is an image of the japanese buddha souvenir i talked about. i can't believe it's from 2 years ago. i can almost still feel the burn from climbing all the stairs to see the nihonji daibutsu .
i've been keeping up the habit ! over on flickr . thank you habit blog . i'm really going to try and keep it up.
i've been thinking a lot about language. the little is really really trying to communicate. her vocabulary is slowly growing. i've told you about "out out". she also says "up up" a lot. almost everything with her comes in doubles. she's just starting to say more - "mo mo" and of course there is no - "no no" - complete with waving hand gesture. what is fascinating to me, though, is how many ways she can use her limited vocabulary to make me understand what she wants. "up up" - she says this while climbing up stairs : when she wants to GO upstairs because she's tired and ready for sleep : when she lifts something off the ground : when she wants the lid off of a jar or tupperware : when she wants me to pick her up or put her on the couch... i really wish i could understand her "gibberish" - she says "bye-bye" and then a whole slew of "words" when we say goodbye to the park, or to buses, or the outside - it sounds like the same sentence to me - i wonder what it means to her.....
p/s thanks for the tiny showcase support. in these economic times i'm happy that people find room in their budgets to support art. if you are interested, there are some prints left ....
happy week to everyone.
