The act of sorting in itself can be quite powerful. When you own a lot of stuff, items get overlooked, missed. Closets and cupboards contain can hold more than the memory. We found this to be true in our case so we created several videos highlighting this process. Part of becoming a minimalist is not having so much stuff you forget you have it.
On our recent road trip to Dallas, I managed to record this mini-braindump. We were at the Belle Plaines Rest Stop outside of Wichita, KS. It was a really nice place to stop and stretch, take in the views and find interesting pieces of traveling art.
Recently we traveled to Dallas, Texas for a conference, and a well-needed vacation. It was a great trip, and while I brought along the camera, I didn’t really record anything until we were heading home. For me it was about the experience, being with people I hadn’t seen in quite awhile, and meeting new people.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve rediscovered a long time passion: Zines! A while back a friend was making them, and through our conversations, drew me in. Her flair was converting old Live Journal blog posts into zines, and then bad goth poetry. She then introduced me to Charissa Lucille, the creator of the Fem Static Zine and owner of Wasted Ink Zine Distro (WIZD).
This introduction led me to create my first zine: Please don’t call me a Lesbian, I’m a Freak. I traded most of them at my first zine fair, and then other people bought copies.
In this new braindump I address finding places to create in a space that isn’t optimal for creativity.
