wip and done stuff

One of my new year's resolutions was to get out side more and paint. I love this, and used to do a lot of it. One sunny Jan. day I did just that.  The river was high, and lent some great stuff..

Also, some warm fuzzy stuff on the needles. I'm loving this hand dyed chenile and mohair.
Received this in the mail today... finally! Delightful movie.

book love

I love Francoise Tellier-Loumagne's series of books, The art of knitting, and The art of felt. I love that she ties in the world around her and her inspirations of her work. I refer again and again to these books with gorgeous pictures and inspirational work.  Not at all a how-to (tired of those), very much a visual experience.' Check out her web site, in French, but great photos and galleries..

let me not search in vain in the darkness
but keep my mind still in the faith
that the day will come
truth will appear
in it's giving light to the empty black of

the blue shadows in the forest
look at the sun in silence
trees guess the secret and smile
while the leaves whisper

at the center of it

the center is still
and silent in the heart
of an eternal
dance of circles

pure beauty

if you go down to the woods today

if you go down to the woods today
come with me and walk the path
gaze above the leaves and sky
until the dark overcomes us
black bird crow sparrow dove
sound evening's song
the black wing of night sweeps down
and covers us the hushing
moving to river's bank
and on
