Cowrie shell backpack from Pier 1. Only the Lord knows when I bought this – Nia was little, or maybe my college days. The black cotton faded, but the embroidered piece remains color-filled. No pockets, just a beautiful black hole. Love it.

TAKEN – thanks
my eddie bauer backpack comes to the rescue once again. my brown leather laptop bag’s strap broke, so i went to my old standby. it takes a licking and keeps on hauling all of my stuff. i remember getting this at the eddie bauer outlet store in jeffersonville, oh several years ago – maybe 10 or more – because i loved the color. while green is my favorite, and i love purple too, there’s nothing like mustard or yellow to brighten my mood.
when my oldest n was a toddler, she was diagnosed with asthma. i read that yellow is good for asthmatics in some book about decorating with color. i can’t remember why, and i didn’t mention it to her. when we moved into our house a couple of years later, she announced that she wanted to paint her room yellow. so we did! i don’t know if it helped her asthma or not, but i can’t say that it hurt. within three years, her symptoms were virtually nonexistent. we never repainted the room. i don’t mess with stuff like that.
so i’m home again, after several long and productive days. so this photo is of the bag where i will soon be – in my bed, hitting a z. thanks be to God. peace.
