how things go with one another and because of one another


this is the Winter back door. it is the door to the Room where i make cloths.
has a large window that i love.
was made, the door, out of a screen door by my daughter and granddaughter and me.
it does not fit the door casing, so there are many cracks that the wind enters.
Because i love the door, and because it is only really
here, maybe 3 months of the year
i think of ways to just wait till it's warm again.

this old horse blanket is one. course wool. (i also stuff
things in the cracks of the door casing)
but the blanket. it is too linear for comfort and so
yesterday when i put it up for this winter, i added
the Lizard that was gifted to me by Jude in the Beast Class.
That Lizard has been many different places in the house
and now is totally and magically perfect on that
blanket, making everything ok and good.

Why? i am looking at shapes, colors, relationships.

that blanket is amazing. it is so. woven. that lizard might hide anywhere. even under a rock.

Jude..yes it is. so woven.
and i am staring at it. how
there are things about the
Lizard cloth that are having a
conversation with this old
woven blanket.
did you see the Wim Wenders movie
Wings of Desire? the angels
in the library scene, when they
hear all the conversations going
on in people's heads, this
beautifully depicted moment of
how it is with people...well
it is as if there is this very
muted exchange going on between
the blanket and the Lizard cloth.

the blanket has the look of a spirit cloth,
woven by someone of great wisdom,
long ago...

*so lovely and at home.
