Just Nine

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Small Journeys have no direction. Except somewhere. Like growth. No beginning. No end. Just one thing continuing from another without judgment. That is what I am thinking. The idea of getting ahead must be discarded. Yes. THIS I have finally...

Getting through it

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Sometimes when you look back on days they seem to make sense. But when you are in them they don't. That is just the way it is. I think story is that, the sense of it all. All of a...

6:48 PM. New cables. Internet up

A Short and necessary Break

I scheduled some necessary internet repairs that will keep me offline till Friday...when, I imagine, Small Journeys will resume at LightSpeed. Meanwhile, I will be quietly stitching knowing the web of life keeps us connected. (Yes, I have email on...

Big Journeys

The big cloth we call Home. It is a world. It is a shelter with no walls. I think it will carry going in a safe way. I need a few quiet days. To understand the Going. Some how it...

Straying

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

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...

The Studio on a Sunny Day

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

On a sunny day, there is so much light in the studio. Even though it is a relatively small space, about 14 feet square, it seems larger because of the windows on 2 walls. It is very poorly insulated and...

Free your mind jude

I love nine. When you love something, you tend to nurture it, and to nurture it you need to know what makes it grow. And nurturing growth has a lot to do with realizing the potential in that. Perhaps even...

Dry feet in the studio

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Rain all day. The wood stoves in the studio is fired up this evening. Not because it is cold but because it is damp. Chicken (aka Soul-o) was out all afternoon and his feet were cold and wet. But not...

Live Forever

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

(Sedum purpureum) Mom planted these. When I first moved here over 30 years ago. And indeed they seem to live forever. On these cool mornings, I find bees sleeping in the flowers. So drowsy, I can even pet them. Although,...

As if overnight

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

But Not. Taking a day or two out to rest in change. Taking a deep breath. And just asking myself if change is the only truth. And isn't it just amazing that we might bear witness to it then. Today...

Ooops! Where did September go?

Oops!  Somehow nearly a month has flown by and I haven’t posted anything new on my blog. And now it is Autumn.  YaY!  Autumn is my favorite time of the year.  But I refuse to think about the fact that the beginning of the crazy “holiday” craze is just another month or so away. With […]

Windows in September

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Sometimes the TimeLines we impose on ourselves, our world, don't seem to sync with what is really happening. But today, with the shift, it seems just about right. As if IT IS suddenly autumn. As if Summer packed her bags....

Autumn/Fall and the Rhythm of the Planet

Illustration: An Autumnal Morning. Photo by John Hopper, September 2014. As we approach autumn/fall, at least in the northern hemisphere, we start to think about battening down the hatches for the coming winter. As summer begins to fade...Show More Summary

Here it comes

I didn't really plan or get involved in making an Equinox cloth this time around. But I looked around. What was on the walls. And even without unrolling what has been shelved... I realized that any one of these things...

Night and Day

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Three AM and there was to be no sleeping. Chicken (Soul-o aka Bugs) got up and began to hunt crickets in the studio. So many this year. It got crazy. I diverted him with a snack. We made coffee. It...
