A collection of some items I treasure for @npr and @kpcc #PSMyFavoriteThings • 1.) a drawing I did several years ago that signifies a turning point in the way I see creativity. I realized I needed to stop trying to emulate other's work and just allow myself to be me. 2.) the skeleton key and ruler are bits of history I found in the basement when I moved into my home. I don't know their stories but I love their tie to the past. 3.) my great grandmother's watch... I never met her but I love knowing she wore this on her wrist everyday 4.) my grandmother's bee pin... I inherited this when my favorite aunt died of lung cancer seven years ago. I think of both of them every time I see this pin and I smile. 5.) the pin my father wore in World War II... he quit school at 17 to join the marines and always joked that the war would have ended much sooner if he had gotten there earlier. I lost my father a year and a half ago to lung cancer and I miss him, his humor and his strength everyday.

  • erinleight@escaphotography I so appreciate that Blake... I've been a bit Hermitly (Hermitish?) myself. But maybe some spring weather will give me a needed boost and some inspiration. Are you thawing yet?!
