everything seems , what's the word I seek,
The empty spaces became filled with green
and my needle kept going in and out, in and out
I made things in the evenings that I had not even considered when I woke up
My fabrics piled up around me and the light poured into the house
it revealed beauty I hadn't noticed
and also that unnamable something....
making making making
writing and unwriting journals
When you make something you have proof that something has been accomplished, something is different. It's proof that there has been a change. You have made a physical change. You have made a thing. It's through the physical world that you can have a spiritual life. It is about transendence. Something has moved from one state to another. Art is proof. Art moves your insides into the physical world. It doesn't rob you of your insides, it;'s just a representation and it's always different. It's like a mystery and you're trying to rein it in or something.
