All valentines and valentinos,
Some nice words for the end this day,any day,
“For me, a lovely day,is any day I wake up”
Bernie S. Siegel
So here we sit, each of us. Some of us have been cut open before. Some of us have never truly been cut open. Each of us has a sweetness. Some sweeter, some less sweet.
Forgot to note who has written this ,but so beautiful
End of the first workshop,had a wonderful time,thanks to all……
Feeł so grateful to be here
And The day came,when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to blossom
Where you stumble, there your treasure lies.
Crafts: “A matter of scale and pace”
We feel ,we felt
The loose fibers interconnected into a web,into bonded fabric.
We women ,like the fibers become interconnected. Visible and invisible.
There are the visible felt creations,and the invisible felt which represent the meetings ,the partnerships,and the sustainability of the women.
Felt making an expressive Art to develop a new community.
I am grateful to be invited in this world .
Stay with the wool.
Happy new year. Marjolein
Winter has swallowed us, taken us deep. In the chill of ice, trees stand stark as bones, the land is cold iron, frost slows all movement so Gaia is still as death. Only the brilliant stars in the black sky remember the rhythms of earth as they wheel through the night. All is connected. As stars bloom and die, as flowers fall to seed, as bone becomes nurturing ground, the wheeling universe lives in its Beauty and pattern. We are stardust, born of the Great Goddess, and in her is all hope. Even in the most severe terror of darkness and cold that Kali brings, the Spark flares again to ignite the perfect miracle of life. When all seems lost, the mystery of the universe begins to lift us into light and renewal once more.

Happy holidays for everyone
End of first workshop “Seed,fruit,& flower ,at the wonderful textile studio HAWAR,Olderberkoop ,Holland
“…..dansen moet je zei schaapman. Zolang de muziek klinkt moet je blijven dansen. Hoor je me? Je moet dansen . Blijven dansen. Je mag je niet afvragen waarom je danst. je mag niet aan het nut ervan denken. Nut heeft het hoegenaamd niet. Als je daarover begint te denken, vallen je voeten stil. En als je voeten eenmaal zijn stil gevallen kunnen we niets meer voor je doen.”
Allow yourself to wander aimlessly. Explore adjacencies. Lack judgment. Postpone criticism.
Bruce Mau ,incomplete manifesto for growth
To journey without being changed, is to be a nomad. To change without journeying is to be a chameleon. To journey and to be transformed by the journeying is to be a pilgrim.” Of course you know, we hear that and discover that, and I and everyone who reads that or hears that, we want to be the last one. We don’t want to be chameleon or the nomad, but the truth is, we’re all three, and we move among these things. This is part of our incarnation on earth.
