Emily & Capri

United States > > > with Loretta & Marlene in United States

One of the many wonderful things about this trip is that it truly showed me the degree to which I’ve been allowing anxiety to block me creatively.

The culture I grew up in is all about doing everything perfect perfect perfect & if it’s not perfect it’s WRONG, & if you’re not perfect you’re WRONG. The geniuses of Gee’s Bend don’t play that way. They’ve shown me a better way to work & a better way to be. I cannot overstate how much this experience meant to me & how much I will treasure it for the rest of my life.
