I will be away for the month of August, you might catch me posting a photo or 2 here or on Instagram. Please note the Small Journeys link has been moved to the Student Links page. Use the button in the top menu bar to access the series.
It rained like no tomorrow late yesterday. But here it is.
I plan to be away for August.
I need the time. And space. To rearrange. Shift. Center.
Balance is a matter of practice I think.One must be ready at any moment for everything to change. Even if it is just the wind.One must practice change more than anything. Manage the unexpected. Dance with it. Not repeat the same old same old in hopes to get it right.
I will be checking my email now and then. Posting a photo or two when it happens. The only surfing I will be doing is the kind that happens when you catch a wave.
The Small Journeys Series has closed. The links to content will remain open.
Any updates worth mentioning will be posted in my newsletter. (Up top)
The indigo vat waited patiently and yesterday I realized it was ready. But last night the raccoons got into it.
Knocked it over .
It's been so long, and I was just about to get to it.
For a moment I felt sad.
I've a lot of blue scrap here though, and I have decided to make a quilt for my son. The Boy. So a lot of the scrap will get used. Many blue squares are piling up. It will be a summer blanket. Simple and blue. The kind I used to make in simpler times. It will probably take me the year to finish it. Leaving me with less and him with something useful.
Thank you raccoons, for reminding me I have enough. For now.
The steam has returned. Although the last few days were grand. Hot but dry.
Visitors over the weekend, but no stress really. Just faced what was in front of me without thinking about time. There is so much more of it when the computer is off. Phone too.
This is a zinnia, almost a bloom.
And then, almost not again. I lost track of the in between.I am aware that I am more focused on change. Lately. The form it takes.
No sleep came last night. Change is confusing. Thoughts seem bigger.
I might try this today...until the big storms move in anyway. Big rain last night. Just thunder at day break shook the ground. The house. Maybe it will be just a sound storm today Sometimes that happens. A good shake is good now and then.
