He is really patient lately, wakes up early and just waits. It’s May, and yet, cold enough for a fire, so I built one. But here is a lawn update. My neighbor told me to be careful, these weeds will take over. He gave me a puzzled look when I said I was excited. A little stitch. Not to much, just to make note of what was running walking through my mind. One at a time then, walking stitch.
And celery said, “You thought I was finished.” And the cloth said… It’s almost May and May is porch month, it will all be ripped up for a while. Probably this weekend we will clean everything away. Soul-o will be in a trauma for a while. He is scared of all other people. I can relate, somewhat.
Wasn’t it just Yesterday? Soul-o is a sunbather. There is more noticing here than anything else. This figure is a leftover, cut from the back of another stray self cloth to manage thickness. A shadow self. A scrap of self. What’ left of self. Just so funny how the foot happened. I tried a bit of stitching on very gauzy cloth, I think the struggle is evident but the spin is still there.

Soul-o. I think we have made the transition. He is now the cat he was back on the Island. Cautious but outside. The difference is that we don’t let him out after dark. And where as he used to run away outside when he was scared, now he runs inside. He has adjusted to the schedule and seems happy with his return to freedom. And his new sense of home.

Here we are. Almost the middle of April. Big moon coming. And I have a new design wall out on the porch. I painted it white last summer. The porch is my studio now for as long as it is warm enough. I am thinking I will simply work on the Just Home series through April. No other agenda. I am organizing my cloth thoughts for May when I will be able to talk and film outside. And begin again. […]
