Back in Baltimore, I saw a lot of yellow over break, but it feels like a dream. A dream so wonderful you can't believe you've woken up, but you're struggling to remember the details, and in the end all you know is that it was a good dream and you cannot wait to dream again.

Just when I thought I had dying down it does this! It makes no sense in my mind. Why does mixing two different shades of green make gold? Don't get me wrong it is a lovely accident, but it just doesn't make an ounce of sense. Time to rethink everything I thought I knew. Maybe I need more science to really understand color.
I've been working on this project, knitting, enclosing things. I wanted to explore the senses, sight, touch, sound, smell, everything but taste. The problem is the smell. I still have more than two weeks until crit, and the smell is already taking over my room, obscuring all my other senses. Absorbing all the others, melding into something I have never smelled before, and never want to smell again. But it looks like, for now at least, that we are stuck with one another.

The glow of my lamp while I knit, reminds me of the kerosene lamps I used to read by in my grandparents remote cabin. I would always burn my fingers on them when I tried to blow them out, even though they gave me blisters, I can't say I was happy when we switched over to battery powered lamps.
