Like a Jigsaw
I envy people who receive revelations complete and in full colour. I rarely do.
Rather it seems like revelations for me are like jigsaw puzzles. You know - the really hard ones? The ones that may take weeks or months or even years to finally finish?
This morning I appear to have set the last piece of the current puzzle into place. The puzzle of what to weave. What do do with the rest of my life - for however long that may be.
One thing about having health issues is that one gains a heightened awareness of just how fragile this life is, and how short one's alloted time may be. Dealing with such issues the past few years has brought me to the realization that I have had a very good life in many ways, but that I am not a young immortal. Some people would even consider me.........old. :D
My new direction is still settling into place. I'm working on the technical details of the cloth I want to construct. I may even submit some of it to Handwoven, in which case I should not publish photos or details here until I decide if I am and whether or not they will accept it for publication.
So I won't say more about that now. I'll just say that my little heart is going pit-a-pat with anticipation.
