The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me

I mentioned in my previous post that I’m in my first semester of thesis, and it’s a little overwhelming.  There are so many things that I want to do, so many things that I haven’t tried, that I barely know where to start.  It feels as if the things I’m working on and experimenting with are unconnected because they’re so varied, but since they all come from me, how can that be true?  Especially considering that my theme revolves around connection: connection to community, friends, family (whether blood relations or chosen family), etc. 

It’s the thing that brought me to the Fibers major and the Craft Center in the first place, so I’m trying to come full circle and, for lack of a better term, complete the circuit. 

So what am I working on right now?  A piece about my connection to the knitting and crochet community, supported by the people who share my enthusiasm for the processes.  One about my family and the way textiles form a link through the years to previous generations, or from them down to me.  And I’m working through an idea about how I connect to the geek community through my love of genre television, books, and movies, and especially my love of costuming at conventions.  I’m not quite sure where this one is going right now, because I’m taking it in a couple different directions, but hopefully one or both of them will work well.  They might even be two parts of a whole.  We’ll see.

So, how do you connect to people?
