Recurring themes dreams...

It was hiding for a while

Not possible I say to myself,  to settle my chaos.  To  gather it all, to Make Sense.  I can only feel it, like in a dream.  Words can be useless in times like these.  Like a lot of dreams, I cannot remember in a way to explain, but there was a going. Here, evidence of that.  What if   art   is simply evidence...?

Then, looking back, finding story told.  Yes, that is why I continue, so there might be crumbs. Maybe simply evidence of  thoughts caught.  This glossary thing is helping me speak my own languge.

Nest of Days is on the table, maybe becoming bigger,  Grow is by the sewing chair waiting for me to cross a red line,  and this one, folded over at the top, because it is too tall, hangs on the wall to remind me it is all  A Balancing Act.   It needs to be somewhere else, it is and will remain a curtain.


And for the record,  I am, officially, a Nana.


  1. Congratulations!
    I’m not a Nana, but a Dadima, which is an Indian term for “father’s mother.” I love being a Dadima, but gosh! Grandchildren grow up faster than children! Mine will be 13 and 9.5 in a couple of weeks.

    Oh Congratulations to you Nana! My oldest granddaughter was born twenty years ago yesterday. January 18th is a very fine day to become a grandparent. Joy! Joy!

    JOY in your best name ever, dear Nana. My grand kids do not call me Nana but call me GrandMa with the M capitalized; they have also called me the great G, Graham Cracker, and Goofy Grand! You will see how it will go, these wonderful adventures that await. This quote, by the late author and environmentalist Rachel Carson was given to me when I became a Grandmother and I, in turn, have given it to all I know who have become Nanas/Grandmothers for it so dearly explains what we can become to our grandchildren. I should say that it equally applies to GrandPas as well!)

    ” If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”

      A Nana! Oh wow! That is delightful news! The beginning of another story..a lovely love story. Yes, Congratulations!!
      Your glossary continues to very simply, be a joy. I love the fact I can start anywhere and find myself going somewhere…sometimes to a new place or sometimes revisiting. It has the quality of never being out of tune:)

    Congratulations to you and family on newest little one!
    I don’t know if it helps, but I have found a certain amount of chaos is a necessary part of creating. A stage in the process- it gets resolved as the new object emerges. But I am sure you know this.
    All the best.
