San Francisco, show me all the ways you love me.....

And I'll love you right back......

And here's what is inspiring me right now.....

[E. V. Day]
“what helped me in imagining new forms for these costumes was all the evidence
of life that I found inside them: multiple alterations, perspiration
stains, dirt from dragging frilly petticoats across the stage so many
miles, makeup smudged around the collars and layers of tags sewn inside
showing their provenance: the characters, the productions, the stages
they’d played.”

Tiffa, you are missed. In so many ways. And so much of you still here, glowing, flowing and evolving. I see your influence in so many places. But it's not you. And I miss you and I'm nostalgic for all that could have been. I know it's not just me. Love to you, in the starlight. Blessings to your family. Much respect, radiating heart.
