Where (Gigi) Lives

Posted September 5th, 2013

As part of our series on Where (you) Live, Gigi McGraw writes in with this picture of her favorite room–a picture she also uses for some honest self-assessment:

HomeGigiMcGrawThis is where I live. My bedroom is my favorite place in my current home because it is the brightest as far as the sun getting in and it is cozy. Now wait! you may say . . . this room is a holy mess! And I’d concur it is a bit untidy but these are the challenges of the offspring of a hoarder. I took this picture to encourage me to keep cleaning. I actually have several pictures of the room in total cluttery mess–this picture is close to it being clean. When you are striving to re-structure inherited bad habits like sloppiness and hoarding you use all the motivational tools you can muster.

Truthfully submitted,

I want to hear about where you live for the blog, and for our Facebook page. Send me a photo of you’re “home,” whatever that may mean to you, at NickG[at]FringeArts[dot]com. Brief stories or poems about the photo or your memories of “home” are welcome!

So Percussion’s Where (we) Live runs September 12, 13, and 14 at the Painted Bride Art Center, 230 Vine Street, Old City. All shows 9:00 pm, $20-$29.
