sing it again

through the opening of the mouth
we bring out sounds from
the mountain beneath the soul

these fabrics together

I have been cleaning - death cleaning - each night before bed
I bring up 3 books from the stack April put on the floor from the shelf in the studio I am loaning her
and also a handful of something from a shelf or a cupboard...something that I have been saving.

Now I am in my cloth cupboard, and it's interesting how going through everything slowly causes me to re-evaluate, be inspired anew, or give away.

effort poem

we begin to learn as children
through our feet and skin

first the body
then the mind
through the hands

we learn to think through making

for a lifetime

It is not an image, it is not an idea

it is an emotion you want to recreate         Louise Bourgeois

For a lifetime I have wanted to say the same thing.  L.B.

one week of daily practice

last night's moon was orange
a waning gibbous moon

the first phase after the full moon is a waning gibbous
then it becomes a waning crescent
then a new moon
then a waxing crescent
then a waxing gibbous
then a full moon

desperately standing still

Champagne for our real friends and real pain for our sham friends.

francis Bacon

I work very hard and I never - never! get people to understand what I mean.

the super moon

 The biggest factor that invites luck into our lives is the power of positive thinking.
A happy soul filled with positive thoughts is sure to attract good luck.
Never ever underestimate the power of a wish.

From the Indian Luck Book by Monisha Bharadwaj
