Dark Matter

a mixture of the unknown and the tangible - by Jennifer Newsom

The Survey Says. . .

As I noted in my summary of my Signature Strengths, I am a collector. The "Input" strength factors heavily in how I conduct my life, so it only makes sense that I've got images clipped, physically archived, and digitally saved of my favorite buildings, colors, textures, patterns, moments, quotations, et cetera lingering around in order to provide inspiration at a moments viewing. There has been little opportunity to get these collections out of my computer or my polypropylene storage boxes. For a time I had curated a pretty bad-ass slideshow on the now-defuct Domino website. But of late the files have just sat in a box or on my hard drive, gathering dust. Until I saw Kirtsy and had to contact the creators. An entire website of collections! With no overarching theme from one collection to the next! Just musings on what people think are cool, and that's it - take it or leave it! It sounded right up my alley. Fortunately, the editor liked my collection ideas and I'll soon be creating a post on Kirtsy! I'll be sure to link to it from here.
