My knit for Grrl.

A little bit colourful

a little bit dark

a tiny bit controlled

mostly utter chaos.

Quite possibly a metaphore for my life at the moment.

This is the piece I made for Sam for Art of the Month.

A little , ok alot, Mirka Mora inspired.

Which got me musing about people that inspire me and why.

Mirka ofcourse is one… maybe its because of her age (i like to have a role model for women who live life so fully) her attitude, her family AND her Art that I’m drawn to her.

Thats my now.

In brief….

I met more that i think may change my life….

i danced like i’d never danced before

i did the veggie workshop !

i sat with the whale on my doorstep

I cried some more

i reconnected

next week i might do it all agin…..

“i think we are in trouble”


And now, as the devastation continues to unfold those left behind begin to try and understand, to make sense, to help, to heal slowly slowly.

Today everyone walks in a dream… gradually waking and wandering and wondering.

all i can do now is pray.
