Catching thoughts with Focus
Catching Loose thoughts
So a video. ( link to YouTube version here) Probably I can say that I could spend a lot of my time doing this, handling scrap. I kind of just got lost in it here, so much so that the video is not a good video, focus is not good, but hey, that's what happens when your focus is somewhere else. It's also maybe a little too long, although I might have gone on for what might seem like forever. I did not do what I usually do, that is, focus on the video and presort to make the presentation shorter. Maybe, usually, I would show fabrics I had been more sure would work. But this is really more like the first step. And the truth is, a lot of video needs to be remade and that takes so much time but worse, even, is that re-doing and editing just takes the realness out of the moment. Polishes it and gives the impression that everything always just works out perfectly. NOT. Maybe, I was thinking, maybe I put a lot of time into making it seem like that, without realizing.
Anyway, I pulled a few more and ended up with a tangle of greenish-ness. More of a Loose Palette. A sense of green. Maybe some seem green just because I was using green as a mind filter. If I did it again, it might not be the same. choices.
a bit blurry but my thoughts were somewhere else
Catching thoughts by looking
They look different like this, don't they? And I just take a bit of time for gazing these days, in between gone and going... Just Being is so related to Just Looking. I'm loving this part more and more. Having no agenda.
catching Thoughts by remembering
So a story has begun. It begins, or has begun, in May, which rhymes with Stray, in a tangle of green, while competing with leaf blowers. And it just so happens that while thinking of a tangle of green, I remembered this. Which takes me back to the original beast in my work. The lion. I used actual words on this one. Which did not start with green but ended up with green. And it was July. " I went out to the garden and became tangled up in green."
