I'm back

November 26 - December 6 stitching.

The research and writing of my dissertation has consumed me for nine months. I kept notes on a zillion books in these plastic duo-tangs. I made outlines and talked to myself in five black hard covered blank books. The wall in my home studio helped me a lot. Now that the thing is outta here I can return to my self.

HELLO MAKING! GOOD BYE just thinking about it.

What a relief! Followed by a vacuum. I have confidence in you that it will be accepted, or have only minor changes the committee requires. Sincere congratulations to you on a tremendous achievement. Your work is an inspiration to me. So grounded, so genuine, so wise.
