gretchen_jones @elephantjournal's post "Super full moon in Pisces: The Emotional Apocalypes" is basically rocking my world this morning. I suggest you read it- "It’s a time when we are being asked to stop and evaluate if we are on the right path and if our heads and hearts are in alignment with our desires and goals." #weekenders 5h

gretchen_jones In honor of #nationaldogday I'd like to introduce you to our newest family member- Bayou the grumpy ass cutie pie. She's a bitch, but she ought to be. (Also- #womensequalityday is today too? Odd and rude pairing if I do say so myself) 3d

gretchen_jones This weeks #ScarvesNot Scars designer we feature a long time creative penpal and designer friend of mine Alice Wu of @FeralChildeStudio. Alice and Moriah have marched to the beat of their own drums creatively [& in the fashion industry] which has made for an inspiring relationship/friendship. I am honored to have them participate... and share a very close experience of cancer with me and my family- and now you! #breastcancer #susangkomen #ownit #tootd

Q - What/Where are these textiles from?
These prints are both by Feral Childe. We create prints each season to tell the story of the new collection.
A - For the print "Orchestra," we were inspired by the graphic scores created by composers of the new American vanguard such as John Cage, Cathy Berberian, Kathleen St. John, Anthony Braxton, and Pauline Oliveros, among others. In graphic scores, instead of traditional musical notation, you may see a wide variety of marks on the musical page. What if you could play a song based on the pictures and symbols you see in this Feral Childe fabric? Our "Orchestra" print on silk georgette features colored bits of folded and crumpled paper, swirls of watercolor, and drawings of rabbits and foxes as well as a banjo, saxophone, harp, and cello. Maybe that song you hear in your head can be a visual experience to be shared and performed!

Q - Has cancer effected your family?
A - Cancer has been diagnosed in family, friends, and artistic community. It is never easy news, and I know too many individuals who have lost loved ones to this disease. The effects of chemo are horrible. But I am heartened and inspired by this: a dear high school classmate has dedicated her career to cancer research, and she and her team have made great strides in understanding cancer and its treatment.
Q - Do you have a quote or saying for looking on the bright side of hard times?
A - Remembering to take things one day at a time seems to be best

gretchen_jones It's been a loooooong journey across the country this past month. Heading back to family and my roots and now... Heading back to the place I've been calling home. Transition is always bitter sweet, especially when you aren't sure where the wind might be taking you next! Coming across trails like this always remind me- It's the path that is beautiful, not the destination. #getlost #dreamlifers #designerdiaries 1w
