"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Where am I going from here?

Last week I cut off a finished tapestry and started another. The joy and loss I have experienced in the past year and a half has made an indelible mark upon my soul. My new work reflects this. These are tapestries that celebrate both the light and the dark. They are an obvious metaphor for my life. This juxtaposition has resulted in a complete shift in my creativity. Everything about my work has changed. I know the weaving I am doing now is taking me somewhere although I don't know where and I'm not certain it matters. Life is a journey and my relationship with the fiber and the loom reflect mine. I would like to think that perhaps, someday I will heal but I may not and I have accepted that. I will show you pictures next summer when I exhibit.
