I took some pictures of the moon through the trees. And even though I couldn't get the camera setting right, I liked them. Like ragged holes in the sky.
They reminded me of these. Holes in the earth.
Which on this cloth are also holes in the sky.
This morning the cloth we call home was a curtain. Hanging between me and the bright morning sun. Useful. Shielding me. But at the same time filtering through the cloth to help me complete this Ring of Vision.
It is interesting to be mending the cloth with holes. New eyes. Space. Less.
Because of the way this cloth we call Home came together, there are gaps. Along the edge, where a certain kind of staying power is desired, I have filled them.
At the same time marked them. Filled them with cloth or stitch or both. Like lone flames. In red. To remember them. Gaps are important places. Like holes. Probably they had a lot to do with the invention of bridges. And mending. Making do and Just Going.
I've had a lot of thoughts about holes over the years.
Have a category for them.
I even collect them.
But on this cloth. Today I am thinking about holes again. How they let the light in. Helps us see through. Like new eyes. Windows. Get through. Escape. Learn. Wonder. What's on the other side? Find shelter. And how they even might make darkness friendly. Make less more.
The birth of space.
Yes I am cutting through the cloth.
Really not cheap. But electrical stuff is scary. Best fix it. He is a neighbor. Best to know people. Easier to get through it in some human way.
Too much going on to learn new video camera settings. It's warm. Maybe plant some stuff.
The sleep loft was very warm. That is not where the leak is.
There was no moon.
But that depends on your point of view. One more day of reconfiguring a work/video space for the cold months. And I will be back to cloth and talking about what I've been doing.
It is cold.
No moon has proved handy.
This one was started a while ago (I recently added a patch of rain...)and has been my travel companion during a few road trips. I will call it going through November. And take some better pictures later. It was so dark yesterday, but the rain is gone and we are left with a big cold wind. And an early winter.
And now the next morning...
I think the stray cat series has evolved into the Through Adventures in a way. I can so identify with the stray. I will make a bigger one for each month. There is more room to stray. Like this which is about 10" x 12" so far. I am using them to record like a calendar and also to explore. New techniques. Which how it all starts. Just Wondering. And then seeing how that might mean something later.
