Olympia Dumpster Divers 2nd Birthday — 8 Comments

  1. Juliet, thanks for leaving encouraging comments, your blog makes me want to post more poetry, and I enjoy viewing your pics of a place I will probably never ever visit.

    There are various times when one is supposed to be reflective about one’s past and make plans to improve for the future, and hitting half a century feels like one of those times. So while I am in a reflective mood, I figured I should look back on the blog and forward too. Funny how I did not know how to post pics, now I need to work on making the pics the right size. At first, the blog was just all about my project, and now I really want to post about what else is happening in the recycled art world. I still struggle with how to balance the personal and the public, how to make it about me without it being merely a diary entry, but not so impersonal that it loses its original perspective.

  2. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birrrrrrth-day dear Ruuuuuuuu-by, happy birthday to you!

    Ruby, you’re a best of Olympia. Thanks for being born, thanks for sticking it out here and thanks for showing me around. Keep on keepin’ on and hit me up for a birthday beer.

  3. hey, thanks for the birthday greetings, looking forward to that birthday beer, hey Jo, I don’t look no older ’cause, unlike SOME people, I don’t smoke! and living in the Pacific NW, I also get less sun … and despite the fact that I have two teenagers, my hair just is not getting grey very fast (seriously, I do not dye my hair!)
    please don’t hate me just because I am beautiful …. love, etc Ruby
