“This short documentary is the portrait of an 88-year-old woman who lives alone in a log cabin without running water or electricity. Augusta is a non-status Shuswap Indian living in the Williams Lake area of British Columbia. She recalls past times, but lives very much in the present. Self-sufficient, dedicated to her people, she spreads warmth wherever she moves, with her songs and her harmonica.”
If you are to busy to watch the whole thing you MUST at least go to 5:33 to hear Augusta tell the tale of the birth of her first baby…

Hi Friends! Okay – late but great news here, I have been so busy with vacation and move I haven’t had the chance to announce that two sets of my candleholders are for sale this summer at The Perfect Nothing Catalog – a Shop Shack in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Drop by if at all possible! There are many other terrific things to see, here are the online links: http://theperfectnothingcatalog.com/ and http://perfectnothingcatalog.tumblr.com/ (here is a direct link to my sticks) (and here is a link to my tagged “candleholders” posts on this blog).
And some shopping tunes:

It had gone through the wash, I can’t believe it was in there – a year later since our move back to Canada. Made me feel sad, all our old friends and neighbourhood people and our old life. There have been so many changes lately, I feel kind of really disoriented and like I can’t remember what I was going for in the first place…the old life feels like a dream, everything. I can’t believe we moved back with two kids. Maybe that is also part of why things seem set on warp speed.
