More Tales in Tapestry

A new book completed yesterday, likely the last of a bunch that will be drip fed into my store for the rest of the year. Tales await the blank tea-stained pages, which rustically rest in folds between the leather, like paper petticoats. I sometimes feel the urge to write in my books but I know they are not for me.

I resist the urge and continue creating more. Someone will pour their tales here, stories not for me, or anyone; just for the someone who writes. I feel like I am unfolding a secret, a whisper yet whispered, a tale yet told.

I present the paper, to the unsuspecting soul who discloses the unthinkable and impossible dreams, yet believes in them so deeply that perhaps by the end of the book, they are living it.

The power of the written word. Actually picking up a pen, and writing it down.

This will happen. That will happen. I will do this. I will go here with this person. Achieve that.

I think there is something in this.

A little sojourn up the coast, and I captured these images. An unfinished journey, and I shall return and go further afar. There is much to be discovered in this land of ours.

The book, Tapestry Tales (a name I have used over and over... I guess they are a family or sorts) is now available here

The Days of Yore

Another book, a lovely extra thick one for all those prolific writers, such as myself.

Here is a new book, I was stitching for so long I thought I would stitch into the night. I made two covers like this, the other is yet to hold pages. Today I will stitch them in.

Finally after much deliberating and figuring out how to make it work, I have constructed a standing desk in the 'office' corner of my house (for my computer work - my studio is elsewhere and I also stand there). Already I am noticing how much more alert I am while working on things. I recommend it...  Apparently sitting is the new smoking, so reading that is enough for me....

Boho Wrapture

A new book
the last to list for a few days as I pack up house and move, 
for the first time in over 3 years. 

The space that has been home,
is now just a construction of borrowed space, 
with memories embedded in the walls. 

I imagine them whispering, 
what of their words?

Every time I move I say;
"One day,
I'll build my own house."

- A dream I'll never let go of.

Even if it starts with a tent,
on a vacant piece of land.

Even if not to stay;

but to return to,
over and over,
