Sometimes, we do not realize how narrow our focus can be in life. Understandably, since we prioritize our view depending upon time or topic.
Tomorrow will be the completion of my third week with GlobalYell and their textile residency. Already, my perception within and outside the world of textiles has shifted. My vocabulary has expanded. Now, I see various elements of the landscape in greater detail. I have more of an appreciation for what surrounds me, carefully distinguishing colours, textures, scents, and moods. Understanding how to translate these elements of nature into the art of weaving is an exciting adventure.
Yes, weaving will be a long-time friend.
