Endings, Beginnings

Endings.  Beginnings.  Everything must begin before it can end.  But endings mean beginnings, too.   Sometimes endings mean a new direction.  Sometimes endings are just a pause, an Interlude before one continues onwards, on the same path, in the same direction.  Or changes direction completely.

When it comes to Fibres and yarns there are constant endings and beginnings.  Fibre packages run out and new ones begun.  Projects are finished, new ones started.

Bobbins may need several rolags in order to be filled with spun yarn.  A woven textile may require many bobbins in order to be woven.

These endings - and beginnings - are not to be faced with dread but calm acceptance than everything ends.  But then?  Beginning again.

A cycle that continues until the goal is achieved.  Like days.  The sun rises and sets.  The day begins and ends.  And we go on...

In fact, I look forward to the end of each bobbin, and then each warp, because then I can start something new!
