The only thing I remembered from my dream was this yellow dress. I’m not even sure it was a dream, perhaps a flash of a picture and then I woke up. I put the dress on, had my coffee and packed up to find the cafe I have been obsessed with. Just Kids was on my mind again. If there’s any book that teaches you about life, art, love, and being an artist it’s that one. I can’t help but touch the pages knowing that each one is a treasure. I thought about looking for quotes from it. I thought about it as I wore my Gretel dress.
