This is still all about conflict, people starving, suffering, and trying to survive. That's what this whole fundraiser is about- doing my part as a privileged Westerner with so much to give who often (always, usually, constantly) falls into the selfish, greedy culture all around me.
But I am frustrated. My laptop has been giving me trouble, and so I finally got it to the "doctor" to get it cleaned up. I was excited about being able to finally dump my pictures, get busier on my etsy shop, and get selling and fundraising again. But I'm still having problems. For some mysterious reason, the laptop and Brian's desktop both refuse to download photos off my camera. Refuse. All the tricks and flips and special songs and dances that worked in the past will do nothing to move the hearts of these gidgety gadgets. So, yes. I have stock. I have plans. But I keep getting kiboshed.
Also frustrating is trying to find balance in my life. Work has been very, very busy lately. And its an important job that requires all my energy. I have these desires to fulfill for the bags4darfur project, but I simply don't have the hours and the energy at the moment.
I hope you'll all be patient, because I'm not giving up.
Meanwhile, I'll read some more amazing books. Left on my bookshelf:
