This Is Your Brain On Crafts
Artisan Craft Week
This is your Artisan Craft CV; I go by the handle "Sinistrose Phosphate." Now, if you have known me for a while or have spoken to me before, you may have heard me say something like this: "I don't consider what I do as 'art'. I consider it as therapy." It's definitely something strange for an artisan crafter to say, especially when a lot of artisans and crafters do what they do as a job or a monetized hobby. But I am not being facetious at all. I understand that this may not be a very popular or common take on the Artisan Crafts Community as a whole, but hear me out. Crafting really -can- be a form of therapy; one that has been shown with some research evidence. Today, I would like to introduce you to another face of crafting, one that you might not know before.

Love Letters On the Train
Dear Stranger,
I'm leaving this post-it tucked in the side of the train-seat. If you're reading this, you've seen it. I've seen you sit here every few Monday mornings, sometimes tapping a bent, unlit cigarette against your thigh, sipping from your tea (who brings a tea cup onto a train anyway?); sometimes staring at the rain outside, or reading your well-worn, beaten copy of Jane Eyre (I hate that you fold the corners down - it's bibliophilic abuse. I wish the book would papercut you to defend itself a little, but I digress).
You seemed so sad this Monday morning past. Please smile again. I love it when your eyes catch the light of something I'm unaware of, something silently and intimately your own; a secret from the world that makes everything all the more meaningful to you.
- The Passenger
Dear Passenger,
I'm not in the habit of reading post-its from strangers. I found a love-letter hidden in a newspaper once, that the author forgot or was too afraid to send. It made me sad to think

The Girl Who Was Afraid To Be
She speaks to me fondly
of passions and talents,
of guitars and stars,
with such breathless intensity
then stops short and
apologises
for speaking at all.
All because somewhere in her life,
someone she loved broke her heart
by ignoring
her beautiful words
and telling her to
shut up,
keep it down,
nobody cares.
People aren’t born sad.
We make them that way.
