And with a few more stitches, I just about finished it. After some silly bitching about the coming snow, suddenly I said to myself It’s Spring in My Heart. Resulting in a few scattered seeds and a bit of new growth. Then I went outside to bring in some wood before the snow tonight.
Well here it comes again. Snow, tomorrow. And then, again next week. It is warm enough to be outside midday, walking, but then always below freezing at night. A thought caught yesterday… Sort of combines center with foundation. As one piece. Thinking of tearing some thin cloth into squares, then playing what if in the centers, then foundation piecing around them. I’ll try. One at least. I will work with colorlessness. A Sanity cabin maybe. Holding old questions in some useful way.
The only pic I could get was through the porch screen. Three deer women, they came together and wandered off together. We blew the snow off the steps but where we walked remained like a cold story. On a whim, I stitched in circle around the center of the earth cabin, to make it dot like. I used a double running stitch, magic style, but this time using one strand of floss. The dot is not as obvious as I […]
It cannot last long , this tiny spring. After all it IS still February. February is a season in itself. A season of seasons. I enjoy the swing. I stitched another little cabin just so I could talk about a few more things. But no talking today, just walking before the rain comes.
Forward. Just go forward. It’s a circle anyway. I cannot believe that this eye showed up as one of those crazy surprises, when you take a photo into the light. Usually there is an orb or something. Something is in the air. I ran outside, Soul-O close behind. Moss woke up. I imagined singing. That is my neighbor’s rooftop over the hill. She is not a people person she says. I have seen here twice since I moved here. You […]
More to say about this… My sense of spring has taken hold. It’s a need for change. Yesterday I cleaned the living room studio. Yesterday, I received over 100 emails in response to the Forever Zone Newsletter. I will read them today. After I read them, I will decide what to do tomorrow. Meanwhile, I did work a little bit on paper before sunrise. And there they are again, new eyes, even on this cloudy day. They look good […]
And I am simply here. It’s still a curtain, not necessarily for this window, and maybe that will change. I think it might be leaning toward blanket/curtain. A transitional sort of cloth. The holiday lights are still up, probably I will never take them down. Actually I will probably move them out to the porch, they make nice nightlights. I couldn’t find them when we moved in. I always had them hanging in my studio back on the island. Instant […]
This weekend. Learning this video tool. Here just seeing how natural morning light turns out (because I love the edge of darkness). What grainy means. Trying to connect small moments. And just showing for no reason other than so something is here. No snow forecast. But snow. The mountains rule. That stray self on the muslin cloth, I have been calling it Life is Heavy. And today maybe I will call it Carry On, has a more positive sense to […]
It’s been so cold. And now it isn’t. Like a sudden Tiny Spring. Tiny Spring. You know, a moment in the midst of winter when you sense the coming warmth, because you carry season, don’t you? What if Season is a lesson? There are nine scraps here, so Nine for a Sense of Warmth. On this glorious December Day. I am here today, testing to make sure all my housecleaning has been fruitful. To See if there any glitches before […]
