AEDM 2011 #5: Pit stop in Indy
500 miles into the trek I made a pit stop in Indianapolis, my hometown (one of them, anyway). This morning I made my way back to Broad Ripple village, a Lawrence-like part of the city where I used to dwell in my thrifted duds and bi-level haircut twentysome years ago in search of whatever it was I was searching for. It was here that I found my inspiration for the first Artsyville journal; it was here that I learned about self expression; it was here that I bought my favorite dress that said "Excuse me while I do the bugaloo." Some has changed around here, but not much, just like me. I'm pretty much the same girl who wandered Broad Ripple Avenue in 1988 in anticipation of her next discovery, though I do have a lot more wrinkles and I ditched the bi-level cut. Also, I drink coffee now.
