Solstice came like a crack in winter. Warm rain. Windows open. The year winds up with many questions. Like cracks in my mind. Spaces that have not yet become places but possibilities all the same. Off to wander in a warm December rain with a list of questions a mile long. Thank you for your loving travelling companionship.
See you next year...jude
PS - Fringe has evolved into my personal symbol for continuing, aka Just Going.
I spent a lot of time stitching this piece in place. No easy task to catch the wind. Even on cloth. I do believe Wind is the next element here. Fanning the flames that will probably get larger in this section. And to facilitate the movement in the flight path section. Whoosh.
I am here on Thursday, because I cannot be here tomorrow on regular Feather Friday. Actually I am a bit confused and lost as to what day it is. The stillness has left me with a lack of direction. Wind then. Even if just imagined.
There are links to the Magic Feather Project up top and in the sidebar if you are not familiar.
With gusts at 65 mph early this morning, we huddled in the memory of the last storm. Wind in the dark. The song of the wind has changed as it moves Across the water. And then unobstructed by missing trees. There is more of a warning of its coming. Luckily only parts of trees have fallen here this time.
I have placed a new wind catcher on the back of the Wind robe. An ancient wiser fringe. I have renamed this robe, that Dances in Sympathy with Wind, Across and Through. It moves with it.
I will not be saying much here and around the web for most of February. Taking care of Mom, finishing part 1 of Diaries, and this robe among other things. Things are a bit confused at the moment, but with Spring will come that seasonal clarity. New beginnings.
I will update my newsletter mid-month to keep you posted about goings on. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
