Do you get this?
Some days, I can walk into the studio and feel like a kid in a playground full of the best toys in the world. Then I'll have days I just see a mound of mess and I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Usually if in the latter state of mind, I'll take a long walk in nature or just clean up.
For those of you who know me will know that while I love taking long walks, I also love to run. In the past I'd always obsessed over my times, and taken a watch with me without fail, timing myself down to the second to see if I could beat my last time. Lately I have been running without a watch, or an iPod, which I very much enjoy. It's become the meditation it used to be, and I like to keep it this way. In finding my rhythm of breath, I return to my artistic thoughts, meditations and designs for future work. The watch may indeed return in the future, but for now it sits without a battery on the table. It's fine with me. Apparently, time is an illusion anyway.
Here are a few images of some new work, two new books, now listed in my Etsy store. To read more about each book, you can click on the link below each photo.
Further on...something I've been working on for a while... finally coming to fruition.
Winter is fast approaching and it's something I'm looking forward to.... warm knits, fires, and endless cups of tea... running with gloves and seeing my breath infront of me... bliss.
