So before dawn, by lamplight, I sat and stitched, remembering the light of the full moon, and waiting for sunrise. It was so dark. It rained so hard, I had to imagine the sound of the needle as well. But I left a trail, evidence that it all really happened for me, just like that.
Once I had recaptured the shape of the full moon's light, I had fun bending it. I like that about cloth. Its flexibility. Now that I told you, you know that much more about me and what I like about cloth.
I have set about trying to be less confusing about things.
(If it interests you, this piece is continued from here.)
So today it seems I am just feeling sure about some things. Life seems simpler and my direction stronger. Tomorrow we will be celebrating being sure, an anniversary. We will pull the plug for a couple of days...making time and space for some walking and conversation and dreaming and planning the future. We decided we will only eat fruit. I will be back Sunday.
I constructed the piece above quickly today, with the idea that it might represent a ring of vision, and a transition, a way of looking though my current work toward some change that I really have no words for right now.
On second thought... maybe not Sunday....we'll see.
today i added a cornerstone. and then 3 more. because it seemed to anchor the thing. hold it down. keep it from blowing away in the wind.
i am noticing the color arrangement has offered a warm side and i am focusing on that today while i am at mom's. the big chill continues.
but the sun is out. warm and cool, another kind of natural order. very related to light and dark i think.
i will have many house guests about to arrive and no way to spend time at the computer for a while. i am taking a break and will be back in about 2 weeks. maybe a photo here and there if i can manage. i will probably fall behind posting the feathers that come floating in. see you later.
