abundance of memory

In the ordinary act of darning bedsheets with my mother, I experienced an intimate yet astonishing sense of unity in my thoughts, sensibilities, and actions.  I found the possibility of containing such an abundance of memory and pain, even affection for life, in that way.  A strange nostalgia, entirely mesmerizing.  Kimsooja

new stories

 Q:  stories find their authors and this one found you.  How does that work?

A: oh, I’ve no idea how it works.  Nobody knows how it works,  I’ve never met anybody who knows how it works.  If we knew where stories come from we’d go back to that place and look for more, or avoid it.

 It started with Yin Yin.  

A quilt show that has a connecting theme - that of working from the inside, from the back - and that there is no real front/back to any of these pieces.
