Just a quick note here to let people know that I am fine.    
The exhibition is beautiful and I will write more about that soon.

I'm home now and loving being here after traveling to the exhibition near Ottawa and visiting some of our grown children and young grandchildren in Ottawa and Toronto.  

These days I am cleaning and decluttering my house, gathering my life story from my old journals and stitching in the mornings on my 90 inch square muslin and indigo quilt, grateful for it.   

The island state is a state of remaining within one's own boundaries, undisturbed by any external influence; it resembles a kind of narcissism or even autism.   One satisfies all one's needs on one's own.  Only the self seems real.    Olga Tokarczuk

this quilt has been such an inspiration to/for me ... it makes my heart sing every time you bring it here

I'm glad you are doing well, and that the exhibit is getting rave reviews. I'm also happy you are safely home; just reading of your quiet rhthyms soothes me and encourages me to try to do the same.
