a woman’s life

 Being an artist means incessantly healing one’s own wounds and simultaneously opening them again in the process.

interior language

The ancestors created human beings and gave them language, law and culture.  
The ancestors gave their spiritual essence to the land itself.

In search of more time

76 dots started, most finished.

67 not even started.  

About those circles that I am stitching around the dots in the large red piece.  I think I have to leave it for now.

dream work

Woke up with the idea to make large wedges in the lower half and all the dots made more of with cotton embroidery floss.

a positive act

 No work is completely knowable.

We can't reach a precise understanding of the artist's intent.

Even in despair, the artist acts positively.
To produce an object that is intended to last implies a belief in the continued existence of a society of people able to respond.
