I have a lot of unfinished work here. Well, that's ok, but all of it is missing something. Was missing a way through it. But now it is OK. I am unrolling it.
I have a way. To solve some long standing puzzle. I found it while Considering Weave. I call it the magic warp. A new and most significant symbol. It is that, which seemed unspeakable for so long, that runs through me. Keeps me steady. Speaks something softly but surely. Comes together very slowly. Stands for something. Accepts everything.
Connects me to everything else.
The main (yet maybe quiet) component in a new found cloth language I might share.
I am sure you will see it a lot. So I thought I would just say.
Today I am thinking about what I mean by a Small Journey.
There is a bit of stray in all of us. Don't you think.? Maybe what I mean by that is the willingness to leave our comfort zone, if only for a moment at first.
Every bit of what is here in this piece is a small journey in itself. And in some way it is also a nine patch to me . Imagine that. And now as a composition it is also a small journey.
This is a self portrait, even if just for this morning. I call it Serious Stray...Becoming at peace with oneself while considering weave. I think it is about staying in motion. Learning. And the layers of going that make up a lifetime.
