the moon and the stars

"Once I was beset by anxiety.
I couldn't tell right from left.
I could have cried out with terror at being lost.
But I pushed the fear away by studying the sky,
determining where the moon would come out
 where the sun would appear in the morning.
 I saw myself in relation to the stars.
I began weeping and knew I was alright."

images: new work with indigo and stitch


  1. these seem so right just now.

  2. That humongous sigh of contentment and awe that you just heard was me...

  3. Perfect pairimg - Your work, and L.B. quote - Both simple and potent.

  4. this conjures a thought from emily dickinson: "snow"

    It sifts from leaden sieves,
    It powders all the wood,
    It fills with alabaster wool
    The wrinkles of the road.

  5. I pushed the fear away by studying the sky...Blessings for Epiphany...and thank you.

  6. yes judy, the moon and the stars!connected over the miles , perhaps by the moon and the stars?
    the indigo is lovely

  7. oh this is so beautiful seeing both you and Roz working with the moon and stars...the synchronicity...

  8. I feel identified with these words at this moment.

    Why the pieces are mounted on paper?

  9. These stitchings are mounted on 300 lb watercolour paper with stitch.

    I am going to frame these pieces in shadow-boxes.


Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
