When things are meant to be


I wanted to have a look at the latest issue of Where Women Create, because due to my tight books&magazines budget I have to choose carefully, but I couldn't find it locally (probably sold out right away). I didn't want to have to order it by mail. I went to Chapters and had another look. Perhaps, I thought, their shipment is late (I'm something of a cockeyed optimist).

There was no sign of it.

But then my hand went behind a bunch of magazines (my body does that sometimes, I figure it's following an intuitive impulse), and pulled out what was likely the very last copy.

If someone hid it there, I'm very sorry, but it's gone now...

Anyway, when my eye fell on the name Clah on the cover, I recognized it as Navajo, and I knew it had been waiting for me. Elizabeth Clah was featured in an article on Adopt an Elder, and it fairly squeezed my heart. I had never heard of the organization before, and well, kudos to the organizers, and kudos to Where Women Create for running the story and publicizing the organization.


P.S. Some of my favorite people were also in the magazine, so for me it was a bonus issue.

    I really do like to take my time reading these yummy magazines and getting a few ideas for my art area small as it may be!

    Have a great hair day! Becci

  2. I didn't have a chance to look for this in Savannah, we were so busy. Must try to find it in London. xo
