So you are supposed to pay attention
Pay attention, I said, you stupid child
Pay attention with eyes locked there
Just there, for they will see when you do not
There. Look there. Are you looking?
I didn't think so.
Child, child, child you will not amount
To much, if you don't pay attention
With coins and bills and, above all
Your mind that is coins and bills and
Are you paying attention, child?
I think not. It is time for you to start
Minding and not be wandering around
Those brown snow-laced furrowed fields
That are clearly
Are you minding me? I don't think you
Are. Why are you being this way?
What put that in your head?
Do you think you are something
Let it go, child. Please. Let it go and
Perhaps someday you will know that
It was all meant for the best. That
He really did mean the best. That
If you just paid simple attention
Attention would have been paid.

Crafty Mother & Daughter
Originally uploaded by Clint Gardner
This past Saturday I went to "Craft Lake City" an annual craft fair held in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. While there, flickr's very own Big Brown House got my attention and we chatted about her craftiness. She makes items out of recycled sweaters, buttons, and what not. Pretty great stuff. It was also nice to finally meet BBH & Daughter finally. She also regularly attends Craft Sabbath (another regular SLC crafty event). Check out her cool stuff at www.bigbrownhouse.etsy.com. I bought a doodad that looks rather fetching on my summer sun head protector device (also known as a recycled paper--rather than straw--Panama hat.)
