quiet making

wrapping
it's a natural thing to do
it gives a good feeling when I do it
it orders things
it's rhythmic
my daily work
it's emotional therapy
as I stitch, other things fall into space
the time it takes helps me to be quiet
inner time goes backwards and forwards
time is recycled

Ahhhhhh.....the rhythm of life in the work of our hands. May yours continue to be blessed, Judy.

Working on your stitched journals again...heavenly. I so love these.

I so totally agree, stitching is deeply meditative, and excellent therapy - with the bonus that you have something to see for your quiet time.

perhaps the need to be centered is how we define ourselves to ourselves...and a place to find ourselves when we get lost. your hands have grace.

I like the pace of this... your reflections... there is something crucial about working on a timeless craft, something that can reach back in time...

wondered if you were still doing this in the background of your days. Feeling comforted.

I feel the same when I stitch. You have described it very well, the way the line of time changes...

Nancy said...

Yes, there is a comfort in rhythm-work.
