Shapes such as the circle, the square, the triangle and the spiral are found across the continents and across time. They are the basis of traditional North American quilt pattern just as they are the foundation of mirror work from India or resist work from Nigeria. These first shapes are part of what Carl Jung called the collective unconscious, archetypes that communicate universally without words. Each day I try to get closer to these first shapes and their simple beauty.
This house stood abandoned on our road for years and years. Last year it burned down and I miss it.
