Did you know that the Bananafish doesn't really exist?
It's a fictional creature created by a fictional character invented by one Mr. J.D. Salinger.
It's a sad story really, but I always fancied this mythical creature and always hoped for a better outcome. To me, the Bananafish represented possibility.
Did you know that when I first named my brand new graphic design business Bananafishstudio...an actual studio did not exist?
It was a dream, a hope. It was a "someday." I would have to make it what I wanted it to be.
While trying to build a business all those years ago I realized that the true work of my life would be the simple act of creating and recreating a place that felt right and real.
...and I'm doing it again. Here-on this blog...and not for the first time.
it's a reset if you will.
For a long while I've wanted this blog to be about so much more than the shop, or crafts or my work. I kept thinking that I had to start a whole new blog to do that. I put it off for ages not having the time to design something new. But really, I didn't have to.
this something I built from nothing could be whatever I wanted it to be. SO...I switched my focus to content.
I'm 40, I'm an ethnically diverse woman, I'm living a delightfully child-free life, I am a lover of dogs...especially my own...and family...especially my own;) I'm getting close to paying off all my debt...even the student loans, people. I don't own, I rent. I'm currently living in the first house I've ever lived in with the first garden I've ever had, I'm becoming healthy after years of poor habits.
I hope you guys like the girl behind the fish...
