Dear Homeschooling Friends,
It is November 2007. apricotpie is... let's see... approaching its seventh birthday. Like many of you, I only come back to look at apricotpie now and then. I forget about it for a few weeks. Then, one day, I think about it or dream about it (as I did last night) and come back to check on it.
There is always something good waiting for me when I do come back.
This time it was "The Dating Game," written by Jenny who is already married with children. Her clarity about dating is like a sword slicing through all the confusion our culture has about love, dating, marriage, and relationships. I like what she says!
Then I skimmed through Raine's piece called "Don't Say," a thoughtful essay about moving on and moving away. I like it too! It brings back memories of when my family moved to Massachusetts from Ohio, or when we moved from England to Ohio or from Ohio to England. It also applies to me today as I "move on" to a new set of people and experiences in the graphic design world.
Graphic design? Haven't I been designing since I was, like, fourteen years old? Yes. But now I'm taking a course on typography--designing with letters. This week we are taking a word (I chose the word "Hamlet") and trying to make the letters look either playful, hungry, angry, confident, suave, etc....
Above is one of my attempts.
