It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of my maps. And now there are two!
The first is a picture of something I’ve been working on since January; namely, the idea of sovereignty. The idea is a work in progress, and the map is one of many spanning that progress. I am posting it for Nathalie and Jaunita, who are right there with me when I need them.
The second is a picture of change. Once upon a time I was the girl who could not walk across campus without tensing every muscle for fear people were looking at her. The girl who would blush and stammer rather than hold a conversation. The very queen of awkwardness, the non-phone-answerer, the one who declined every invitation. Twenty years on, I am the woman who will pounce upon a friendly looking stranger with a ‘hi, I’m an enormous introvert; pleased to meet you!’ How did this happen you ask? Still trying to work that one out, and I am posting this map for a dear friend who is on the journey too.
Pictures make me feel less mopey about the ten half-finished blog posts in my notebook. Let’s all forget about those posts and enjoy the shiny. Or else.
