The Three Broomsticks

Work in Progress
That is half of a vest that probably never dreamed it would first ever be cut in half and second it would ever become an art quilt.

The thing about adulting is that you have to, like, Trust the world with so much stuff. Money, safety, security. Like, I would like for my identity to not be stolen and to not be t-boned by a semi truck that decided to run its red light, and I would really Really like to not be kidnapped raped and disfigured by crazy hill people.

I have these wants. But I cannot achieve them for myself. I can save money, but I have to trust that someone out in the world will NOT decided to steal it all. I can drive super safe and be really observant and lock my doors and carry pepper spray and know karate. But my alertness might not be enough to counter some one else’s carelessness.

That kind of trust is scary. Because the world more often proves that it should Not be trusted.

And I don’t want to play the Adult game. The Get-A-Credit-Card-And-A-Job-You-Hate-To-Pay-Off-The-Crippling-Debt-Of-The-House-You-Can’t-Afford Game. No.┬áJust, no.
