The way it really happens
How So much goes unsaid
I already realized, as I watched again, at the end...I realized I forgot to say that I rarely knot or secure the last stitch of an invisible baste... but I remember thinking that...see?
So many thoughts. All tangled up. This was just a practice run, to demonstrate how much might be said. How long that might take.
This post is just about how it might go here from now on. It is very important that you know what my idea for this series is. It is simply to get a lot of what has gone unsaid...Said. Is that Loose enough? To represent ( perhaps re-present) the real process which includes the often unsaid. And to reinforce the fact that, for me, it is actually thinking, problem solving that provides the path to story. Not a plan.
This is what I ended up with here, I was sewing on the road. But not saying.
I guess the point I am trying to make here is that it is not a straight line. The shortest distance between here and there might be, but the real journey ( story) is not. And for me the only way to to know the truth is to be there. And even then, it is a matter of perspective, what you get from it.
To the left here, today's loose page. A loose doodle. A reminder to record the scribble as a personal symbol which I just did. I've used it a lot, never talked or thought about it enough. Making note of that. Let me ramble a bit.
So today's message... Accept the tangle, Love it, Use it, Let it hold you.
Let me say a few things more. I plan to just go here. Like I do in Real Life. The story is built from the awareness in going. I will be able to cover all subjects relating to techniques use in my cloth work. And then maybe even paper. Going always puts them in context. And allows them to evolve. I appreciate all your questions and will try to address them all as we go. I don't think it matters what you might work on as a result of this series. The private Facebook group was set up for those of you who use Facebook and would like to share with each other since there was no real forum related to this series. Same for Instagram( not private) (#ragmates 2019). I guess this is a bit different than my previous workshops in that I just want to ramble on and leave no stone unturned, and have time for that, and not be so concerned with what you might get from it as long as it is something. I simply hope the information is useful to you. I plan to talk a bit about materials tomorrow. And then, beginning in May, I will begin working. On something. Your guess is a good as mine. Because of the tangle, we may make a few twists and turns.
NOTE! Please subscribe to my blog for email updates about new class posts or just stop in here on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. After today, I will not be using the Newsletter to post links to class, I will use it only to announce information regarding any new Free Enough class sign up information going forward. I hope this works for everyone. Too many places, so little time...
