a moment to breathe…

I am a SLOW maker of books. And that’s not just because of “life,” and everything that entails. It’s because it may take me months or even years to stitch ideas about form and content together into something that makes sense. My work does not like to rush, even when I’m thinking I should be producing more often.

So, I guess what I’m thinking about lately is this: It’s okay to take a deep breath. And to let things take the time they need to take. To even lie fallow for a while…because even then, beneath the surface, the blood is pulsing, and the brain is figuring things out for later.

In the spirit of the coming Halloween, here’s one of several books in progress…still figuring out the insides of the insides, as it were…

Reminding myself of what's inside...
Reminding myself of what’s inside…
Sewing runs through my bones...
Sewing runs through my bones…
A play off a Dos-à-dos, or a gate structure...?
A play off a Dos-à-dos, or a gate structure…?
It sometimes feels like my whole heart can fit in one hand...
