will you be signing up for the 'advanced cloth to cloth' that opens Dec. 1st. I'm so looking forward to that as well as the 'cloth whispering'.

jude said...

oh you are so sweet. i love seeing that fragment with the holes over there with you.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

deanna..yes...advanced cloth. yes
yes yes. everything.
and this will be even so much
more, because we all know each
other so much more now. i
envision it as being really
Energized and direct and strong.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

jude...that fragment...i cannot
get enough of staring at it, with
it. the book is a formal drawing
notebook..had some label thing
on the front, announcing it's
acid free blah blah..i peeled it
off and there is a little gumminess
left that holds the Wind and that
fragment there, the two of them
signaling the almost sacred sense
that Whispering holds for me....
that this period of time holds for

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

and i wish you could see clearly...
that's O'Keefe behind the lamp
and both she and the lamp are
festooned with's my
favorite photograph of her..
maybe i'll put her on here. yes.

jude said...

so important that we are all getting to know each other. how that changes things.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

jude..yes, and it will change our
cloth, change how we relate
about our cloth, about its and
our Meaning, i think...
i think it's a very beautiful
wonderfull doorway ~

nandas said...

yes to getting to know each other... its like a consortium with jude as the head consort!
we all have so much to learn from each other... i am signing up for the advanced c2c as well.

nandas said...

also, i like snooping around your desk...who are in the little frames?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

nance...i look so forward to
being in that class with you...
who would have ever guessed????
the little is the
Dalai Lama and the other is me
with my "white girl afro", jenny
and jonathan. (my kids).

nandas said...

we were in glennis's class together but it was way different...

Grace! I love your desk area, the warm cozy lighting and ALL! Ready, you are.
My word! i don't know how it is communicated, crane to crane, about the Crane Festival, but lots, swarms, flocks of cranes have been flying over head, toward your way all day! how do they know?
Ms. O'Keefe loved desert life the way you do . . . she is in the right spot, with you.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

nandass, yes we were in Glennis'
class. and having nothing to do
with glennis'excellent and wonder
full teaching, i found myself
unable to navigate, or really,
unwilling to navigate the format.
it was not welcoming. to me.
this, i look forward to.
maybe jude and glennis will work
together one day?

nandas said...

not only that... it was the first on line class for you... that made a difference too. but jude has it down... glennis was just getting started with her videos.

I can't wait either. We're closing on a new house on the 30th. Even in the midst of packing and moving I will be sure to sign up! Love Jude's classes, and love your inspiring work as well. Both of you, a treasure.
