Anyone who has had an experience of mystery knows that there is a dimension of the universe that is not that which is available to his senses. There is a pertinent saying in one of the Upanishads: When before the beauty of a sunset or of a mountain you pause and exclaim, 'Ah,' you are participating in divinity. Such a moment of participation involves a realization of the wonder and sheer beauty of existence. People living in the world of nature experience such moments every day. They live in the recognition of something there that is much greater than the human dimension.
A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain? khahil gibran
all the solar dyeing vessels are covered in pine tree pollen. Good thing fern and i don't have allergies. Some of these have been steeping for almost two weeks. I just finished rinsing them and hanging them to dry. Lots of shades of yellow but a few amazing surprises.
I am having trouble finding safety glasses to fit my new assistant:)
I am going to be outdoors for the entire day today and just wanted to wish you all a wonderful weekend.
oops almost forgot , my first experiment with discharge paste on indigo using one of my hand carved butterfly stamps. Needs a little work but I like it.
