At her welcoming place in cyberspace, Kate gives us connect for our first Five Minute Friday prompt of 2017.
Design and theology are two major ways I connect with people in real life and online in my virtual world. As reluctant as I am ever to talk much about myself, my history, aspirations, disappointments, dreams for the future, when it comes to theology or design I can be a little hard to shut up, sometimes very difficult to slow down when my excitement about the subject drives me into a literal flight of ideas. I've never consciously followed *many* trends, nor have I been a trendsetter myself—maybe except at Haarlem, when I decided to braid my hair and over the next few days several of my female classmates braided theirs. However, please note my very recently designed header banner features the font Bombshell Pro, and that's one I paid real $ for. Hand-drawn brush scripts are majorly trending, and I've gotten some beautiful ones, noticed others I might spring for, but how many does a designer need?
So why would I use Bombshell Pro right here and now? To connect in solidarity with my blogging pal and FMF host Kate. Similar to when you walk out onto the city streets and notice someone wearing close to the exact same outfit you assembled mostly from random pieces you found at random places, it forms an invisible kinship that Kate or anyone else might or might not noticed (or appreciate), and helps me realize I'm not quite that weird and non-mainstream, after all.
