The picture at the top was drawn by my son, obviously many years ago. The wishing star from Henrietta, the elephant by Maura. You may not know them. But maybe now, a bit more, just by looking. Today it is very cold. I will go out and haul some wood up to the front porch for some exercise. And take down the birdfeeders and clean them, which I do often to prevent disease. I have a lot of things on […]
The Magic Cloth. A Larger Cloth, in a sense, without using measurement. In the classic sense. I took Magic outside yesterday for a snow wash. I spent a couple of hours shoveling a path to the compost. I try to be outside, despite the cold, at least a couple of hours a day. To move. It feel like I moved to Alaska. Or at least how I imagine that to be. Magic, have I ever measured it? Too long ago […]
Heart. I had been considering a series for Valentine’s Day, My love Isn’t Perfect. But not too much new work is happening at the moment. Deep winter is more work than anticipated. Now thinking My Love Is Old. No holiday association. I’m gathering thoughts on how to continue here. So that my heart remains in it. These last days, I have simply been practicing how to be here. Posting to figure out what might work. I think I need another […]
A little Sympathetic Evolution then, as snow fell all day and the guy who plows doesn’t show up and the fuel delivery guy can’t get up the hill because of the ice and the deer came to eat the azalea bushes down to the ground. But then, the beauty in it. Round and Round we go. I took the photos in low lamplight. And then used a filter to make them easier to see and they became a bit sketchy […]
They say it will snow for 9 of the next 14 days here in the Valley. We’ve grown tired of moving snow around. But we will do it anyway. My idea is hibernating. But Spring is coming. I’ll trust in that. Season. Just talking to talk. reason The other side is perfect. I need to add another layer to continue. Here as a record of my love. Even covered, it will always be there.
Back to counting. Large cloth #4. To go back to when there was no Naming. I placed this over the cloth called Grow because it was still on the Wall and gives this other cloth a sense of scale . A long cloth I will now call Remember. In sympathy with Grow, now, I will let it become larger. This cloth is so old. But feels so present at the Moment. It is one of the first […]
They are cold and hungry. The picture taken right before it began snowing. Again. It’s deep winter. Deeper than I remember. I did a bit of stitching on the little storm piece that will probably end up as a bookmat. Actually it already has a resting place between pages. I feel like talking even though I need to haul some wood. I talk to myself when I am doing chores, my words develop. Click the audio first […]
