Make your pictures smaller they say. OK. Let's try that. For now.
As I try to simplify my approach to internet presence, I find myself looking at how being here has expanded my reach, but at the same time thinned my vision as well. Like trying to see too far, gathering too much.
And then all this hullabaloo in my brain caused by a few off handed comments about how insulting it is that I don't share everything on my blog and charge for classes. When in fact, I do practically teach for free . Yes I do. Where do you go and pay $95.00 for a nine month workshop? Who does that? With real content. No stone unturned. Community.A woman cannot live by cloth alone.
How much time passes all the same. Doing what I do, going with it. This piece above, from way back here. And this morning, reading back through Spirit Cloth Diaries. Oh my, so worth the recording really. Even if it was just for me I might still do it. All that about reach and wings and getting outside my own box. How the box has changed. This piece that I named On a Clear Day, it is so much about the edge of darkness. The beginning of another day. The promise, the gift in that. I am rambling. I don't care.
And another edge is on the horizon. The edge of White that I have been Whispering as the first focus over at What if Diaries. How that caught me off guard. The newness of it.
Anyway. What If Diaries will open up again for enrollment with the May moon. Because so many of you asked and I have no idea what the new year will bring. It was hard to accept more newcomers for a while because of a bottleneck of administrative work while things started up. But it's rolling now. The series runs normally for 6 months but I extended it though the end of the year, slowed it down and allowed myself some breaks. Signing up now or later will allow you access to the first White segment that you missed and also the option to join the forum. New focuses will include Color, Edges, Indigo and my new passion...Windows. And whatever really. The series is now open enrollment. Note also that Spirit Cloth 101 is also included in What if Diaries to accommodate beginners. Take it or leave it. You can sign up anytime after May 25th.
Down the road, I think the Spirit Cloth blog and Diaries might become one.
In some new form.
In a way they are two sides of the same thing.
I don't want to forget mention how saddened I was to hear of the death of Kathreen Ricketson (of Whip Up ) and her loving partner. Our paths crossed years ago when she kindly linked to me when I first started blogging. She put my work in one of her books and also purchased one of my works as well. So sad, especially, for her beautiful children.
