Well the first acorn hit the deck around 5 AM. Pushed by a squirrel really. They've begun preparations. Is it possible we are here already?
An acorn then. I'll add one here. On this cloth. To express the move through season. This one has done that already. It's a long cloth, there's room for going.
The roof needs work. The garden too.
House of Stray, now aka Ready for What's Next. A stray is always, by nature, readying for what comes next.
Tonight we will stop by the house down the road a piece. They have invited us to a small gathering. Their friend, Geoff Achison, from Australia, is performing at the house. Food and music. We were not familiar, but I found him on You Tube. We don't much mingle around here. But we will stop by. They are not much for mingling either. So perhaps we have more in common than we knew. And I play the guitar. One of these days, I will play for you.
Crossover between sewing and weaving. Scrap Catching.

When I began the project I call Loose Pages, How things float is what I was thinking. This project never really ends. Because as long as I am thinking, layers are added. It started out in a shoebox. My way of keeping thoughts gathered loosely. It evolved into a sort of curiosity, how is it that thought travels ? Encourages new form? How do ideas build?
And then, although I was really focused on the thing , the book, that might emerge from all of this... well then the process itself started to grab my attention. So although sharing the content, the thoughts, the evolution of ideas was my first goal, The Loose Page process became something equally as important to share.
On my mind today is Sharing. The Art of Sharing. How long it takes, like everything else, to master that. Anyway. 2017 will be a big year. And it will be here before we know it.
A note about Feel Free: For those of you who have recently donated to my Feel Free Project, Thank You!. I send thank yous back through PayPal but I am aware that not all of you get those because the email attached to your PayPal account is not always the same as your current/main email and not everyone checks that. Right? And also my clothwhispering email (my PayPal email) often gets tagged as spam (?) and you don't get it. So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for your support. Know that each and every gift is appreciated. Know that. Know that those who cannot donate appreciate it too, it keeps it free for those who need it to be. Oh,isn't this just fine!
