i am a firm believer of the whole 6 degrees of separation concept. not only have i found it to be true in many, many cases but i also like to think there's only 6 people standing between clive owen and i. anyway, i also believe the internet can turn 6 degrees into 5 degrees or even 2. the internet makes the world seem small. in a good way.
there was the time that sarah grace mccandless bought something from my shop - at the same time i'd bought grosse point girl for a friend (it was literally sitting on the bookpile next to the computer.) and a couple weeks ago i was at lill street during open studio. i was locked out of the darkroom and this very nice woman helped me. she was the monitor in the fiber art studio. she as working on this - which i happened upon on etsy a few days later. i saw her again on saturday and she's exceedingly nice. and talented. then today someone left me a comment that she had considered one of the very same items i'd photographed from my trip to the flea market on sunday. weird right? but very cool.
