Began it July 12 in Liverpool, and finished it August 18 at the family cottage.
I had to find spaces in that little red book to keep my thoughts and sketches.
I could not think!
and thought is the 6th sense, Boetti says.
They give me a place to listen to my self but more than that....
They encourage me to think.
Louise Bourgeois said this.
I wrote it into the red journal twice. Once July 24. Again August 18.
Tracey Emin's comment about solitude on July 19.
Solitude is like a new blank journal for me.
It gives me space to think.

It will be open to the public August 27, and will remain up until December 27, 2015.
It has over 90 years of time.
Made from the borders of a much loved woolen blanket, the worn marks left by human bodies and hands are the evidence of life lived, dreams, weather and sleep's vulnerability.

If you are going to them then you are wasting time.
Nostalgia is not productive.
If they are coming to you,
they are the seeds for sculpture." Louise Bourgeois

This summer I am only doing two things.
Family and stitching.
Our Alaskan family is moving to Ontario.
It's an exciting time for all of us.
Summer is short and kids are the perfect age for such a brief time.
