still having heavy connectivity and server issues during the transition from one phone company to the new one. meh! hoping it doesn't continue for too long... it plays havoc on my uploading and viewing abilities!
meanwhile, i'm putting the repurposed time to good use. my life and home has become choked with options and possibilities. being a collector and gatherer, i tend to go overboard at times. never wanting to walk by that wonderful new fragment or resource. i am finding that having too many options, too many fibers and fragments, too many books filled with other people's ideas, has become quite stifling.
so, fabrics and fibers are being sorted and packed away, leaving only a small stack to which i will add from time to time, culled from the Great Stores that i seem to have amassed. rather than having mountains of choices, i will be experimenting in forcing myself to make do with what i have at hand. not scurrying about, rifling through a neverending sea of fibers to find that elusive "perfect fragment".
i'm also finding new homes for a lot of my furniture, as my home has become cluttered with antiques and cherished sticks. i need space. not another ottoman to trip over. room to move. to create. to contemplate. i plan to redesign my studio this week. open it up. clear it. make space for the whispers to cultivate quietly...
yes. space for the whispers.
space for the cultivation of ideas.
space for the mending. re-integrating. repurposing.
space for new characters to manifest...
