Yesterday was a beautiful day. Seems different here. OR. Since we moved, I feel different. Is it the place? Or just the course of events. After all, the world seems to have turned upside down just shortly after moving in. I can almost mark my calendar with it. Add to it all that has generally happened. The things that life brings. Funny how we find reasons for things. When there aren’t really any, except change. Funny how we notice some […]
From another season…Building a blue frame then…reasoning I love that reason rhymes with season. How season might even be a good reason. Today I will begin a fast. Claim her own Wisdom, as grace mentioned in her latest post, which I cannot seem to comment on… Hi Grace! Brings me back to what we know from experience. Wisdom, which is knowledge, but a knowing framed only by a life lived. Ginger Lemon Water, the beginning, in an attempt to purge […]
I continue with the game of chasing form. Form contains how it happened. I usually say. Form still contains how it happened even if I don’t say. I want to express how personal that is. Finding that thread. Giving form to what arises through thought. Sense. Experience. The transformation that depends on so much that goes beyond technique. It is difficult to share, and then, explain that at the same time. Sometimes when I see the “sameness” across the […]
The silk caused me to consider becoming lighter. Without disappearing. And then ask, “Where is the edge of me?” Note: Regarding yesterday’s post. There is no list because there is no book. Yet. You know how slow I can go. I would probably forget where I put the list anyway.
Order. Personal Order, then Natural order. All seemingly, over a lifetime of illusion, part of Chaos. Life forms. The tendency to make sense of it all. Today I laughed while thinking about myself writing a book when I hardly ever read one. Also I realize I might not really enjoy it. The process. Then while thinking back to how many times I’ve said it’s not the thing it’s the journey. And then asking myself what if writing a book has […]
Continuing. From here. I made a circle using the Double Running Stitch aka the Magic Stitch when it is done in black and white. I think really I should rename it the Double Walking Stitch. You have to go slowly. And there are more things to say. But not today. Loose thoughts are on my mind and then imaginings on how they might come together. And then of course the question. What If it doesn’t much matter? Followed quickly by […]
Earth House. Just Home #7. What if (?) this one became a lot bigger. Grew to be a base for all the others? I’m just asking though, imagining how that could happen. Sometimes, well probably most of the time, thinking is doing. I remind myself too that doing is sometimes less about thinking. But that kind of doing is different than the doing that catches thoughts. And that has lot to do with what it is for. I think. I […]
Just Home, nursing a spider bite and an injured knee. Neither terribly serious but bothersome. I did a bit of patching over this sketch, Skitch Skatch. As I continued, I thought about how much the character of a cloth affects how you can work with it. That’s true of everything , even people. But back to cloth then, many times materials are rejected because I cannot work with them. Or then techniques might be avoided because what I have on […]
