More Like a List of Things
Welcome to my corner of the world. Today, a list of things somewhat sporadic instead of a coherent or well-thought story to tell. Instead, thoughts like clouds passing but not like you are looking at the entire sky. A leaf in the late afternoon light. The squirrels arguing over something I cannot understand though one looks at me like I should try to understand him/ her or possibly mediate.
The photos above: An embroidery project in-progress and natural linen and red thread will always make me happy. A collection of eucalyptus buttons from a recent walk in the woods and the buttons still smell like the woods but on my studio table so miles away from the forest. Leg warmers for the little one, inspired by sock monkey colors. I have just acquired Maira Kalman's "The Principles of Uncertainty" and I am liking it very much.
Today is my due date! But the little one has decided he will arrive fashionably late, it seems. So I am employing my anticipation to stitch, sew, write, read, bake, walk, dream, and to notice the quiet moments all around me. There is a pause around me now. A palpable waiting.
And you? What are you pausing to notice these days?
