Measuring up

Sally Schintafer was at our Cafe on Sunday. Her words and photos are shared here with her permission.

"The making and discussion of art is a long-awaited experience for me. I didn't know I was waiting, but I was.
One of the death knells in my creative life is the question 'is it good enough?' 'Is it exactly right'? I'm growing away from that gradually and yesterday's discussion illuminated a little more the futility, the loss of trying to measure up.

And to reflect upon the ladies of Gee, their individual and collaborative process; their receptivity to spontaneity and innovation; how they just do it, no matter, and are guided, perhaps partly by genetic memory, to piece in this particular way. Thank you, Julia."
