All of it is Always Happening

I’m having a moment of just sitting for a bit and wanted to document here in this special place to me all of what is happening in my own little sliver of life that is housed in the much bigger picture. But first, I have to send out a deepest call of love to all of those in Turkey and Syria whose world literally just opened up beneath them, creating chasms of pain, fissures of searing heartache, and images of the most incredible grief, courage, love, determination, and exhaustion one can see. Nothing seems all that relevant in the face of that except love. It’s really the only thing that matters at the end of the day.

Actually, I think I’ll just leave it at that.

Hopes For A New Year

This Year:

I Wish For The Calm to Remember to Breathe and Look Around 


I Hope to Listen to the Stirrings of My Soul and Respond Accordingly, With Courage, Not Urgency


I Long to Expand Into and Learn More About Fiber Art, Spinning Wool and Doing Tricky Stuff with Crochet Hooks and Knitting Needles

I Look Forward to Learning From and Talking To Fiber Artists Who I Admire, Who I Love, Who I Barely Know and Who I Have Not Met Yet

I Will Remember Every Single Day to Honor the Blessings In My Life and To Really See My Children As They Grow and Change


I Plan To Make More Handmade Gifts That Are Filled With Love and Intention, For People I Know and People I Don’t


And, This Year, I Promise to Trust Myself More and Make More Time to Imagine, Make and Create

Happy New Year to You!
