Today

“I have also decided to stick with love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.- This is actually a tiny fractured bit of the whole speech (“Where Do We Go From Here?”) given at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1967. You can read the full transcript here.

Building by Just Going

Building. That's the way we transform. Self. Sense of self. I wanted to do a bit of video before I got this far. But it was a beast of a day. With things to do. The kind of doing that...

Rainbow Boy

a few things

Oh dear. My head is spinning with projects and things I want to make. Complete A.D.D. It's okay. I am in touch with how this usually happens to me at the beginning of a new year. Over the next week or two, I'm going to try to organize it in this space. Show More Summary

To build a better Snowman

Here I am, not so in between today. Resolute in a way, about going, not just going, but almost marching. I did a bit of Snowman Storming. Not on paper. But with bits of cloth. here are 9 of them....

Looking in January

Yesterday was a warmer than January day and there was walking. Sunken meadow park, a few miles from here. Where sea and sand met lingering snow. I did not stitch much yesterday, to speak of. The snowman reminded me of...

Still

Still Spaced Out, but not lost. This one. One of the many playgrounds, leftover from SunMoonStars. Hanging on the wall here for so long the edges of the not basted but pinned pieces beginning to curl. I liked it the...

Undone

The Christmas is coming off the house. The tree is down, an epic struggle to gather up all the needles begun. I keep finding them all over the house. I’ll vacuum, sweep, and heave a sigh of relief that it’s … Continue reading ?

How things don't happen but need to...

There were a few more stitches to be taken. On Path. Remembering where I was, not that I forgot but Paths diverge. I'm a multi path person. I took a few more stitches. Which seem like steps. Walking stitches. You...

Just knit faster

Lost in Space

In Between I remain. It has been easier for me just to continue. Continue some small journeys past, rather then start something new. I am feeling better now, now realizing how not well I was for the past weeks. And...

Like she says

I have a young friend, she’s pretty little, and we have heart to heart conversations from time to time, and when things are extra meaningful to her, when she really wants you to understand that what’s she’s saying is important, … Continue reading ?
