"there are nights
when the wolves
and only the
on nights such
the rabbits dance.
it has been a strange and tumultuous year here at manhandled threads. struggles with depression, physical injury, emotional trauma. one does not like to think on things such as these. but to live fully in the moment, one cannot run away from them. i used to think they were things that had to be endured. i have learned, rather, that they must be embraced. otherwise, one can never make peace with the disturbance.
i have recently been laid off, due to lack of work. the lay off is with "job attached"...which apparently means there is a promise of re-employment when things pick up. it makes the insurance issues a lot simpler. it also affords me more time to look for something more rewarding for work. as well as it allows me more time to pursue my creative endeavours. hence my digging through long neglected trunks and baskets of late, revitalizing old cloths.
in the spirit of spring, perhaps, i seem to be drawn to rabbits once again. if you follow my instagram, you've no doubt been seeing them hop by more often. this small cloth, moon dance, is one i started a couple years ago and then lost touch with. it seems fitting to re-emerge now, in a time when i am seeking to fly once more...
