and then new friend Emmy who is investigating symbology
on her blog
and my Dear Helen wondered: so, which IS IT!
and i loved all these thoughts.
i ask myself Helen's question. (don't stop, helen)...
as i stitch, i tell self different stories...one that
the Sun goes to a secret place, a different level of
being during this time
or Sun is absorbed into the earth, into roots, and is
or Sun, in infinite wisdom withholds, allowing rest
or or or
but what it mostly is for me, is lack of light. and
each year, i endure this, watching the days until that
One Moment when balance is tipped in its extreme and
there is more dark than light. one day/night and then
we begin again, moving toward Light.
but what is best about the making of this cloth is
that it caused in me a realization that i can make
that that is in some way i don't fully comprehend as
yet, what this cloth making is for me. and if i
go deeply into it, i will find things i'd never
so...enough for now.
