A small update about my shop and my new zine with Gracia & Louise: The Glimmer of Armour which I introduced here is now available to purchase in my shop individually or as a duo bundle along with It’s the Dusty Hour Zine. Gracia & Louise are also selling both in a trio bundle here. As always Gracia and Louise, it’s been such a pleasure working with you, and expect a special thank you present in the mail from me soon. I think we may work together on some more zines next year.
I’ve still got copies left of my This Year Print, and the words contained within that poem are probably advice I should offer myself again! I’ve placed my own framed copy next to a copy of my mum’s Shalom, Jerusalem Skyline Print. ‘Shalom’ is Hebrew for ‘Peace’, ‘Hello’ and ‘Goodbye’. After the year we’ve all had, I think a wish for peace isn’t too corny.
Other than that, I’m opening up my shop to specific customised orders and prints, so if you’ve seen something I’ve written here that you’d like as a print, feel free to email me. All funds are going towards my ‘travel’ savings to visit my family in Israel next year for a wedding and a reunion. It’ll be the first time in years that all of us will be in the same country at the same time, and I have butterflies of both homesickness and excitement thinking about it.
Speaking of family, it was my brother’s birthday yesterday – happy birthday big brother! And now I’m going to embarrass us both with this photo:
Ah, the good old days when I used to loyally copy his footwear. Do people remember when white, high-top sneakers were cool?
