Woven Thoughts of Mine
A Meditative Process
It feels as though I have been a weaver for my whole life.
When my son Curt was not even a year old,
(he is now thirty three!)
I remember taking him to my mother's house
so I could take a two hour weaving class,
for six weeks.
I fell in love with the process then
and I still love it today
all these years later.
I think that weaving is such a gentle art,
I even named my Blog Title
because I believed in the magic of weaving,
the intertwining of fibers,
creating a beautiful cloth. I wanted the title to reflect my life.
My loom prepared for weaving
Now it means even more to me,
I relate it to the creative process,
whatever medium I choose, and how to live my life.
You see I believe you and I weave our lives in and out day after day ...
in the relationships we are building,
in family love, how we treat mankind,
with our talents, our wants and desires.
We are constantly weaving with
our hearts and the process it takes
us to get where we are going.
I weave with words
when I am creating my Poetry,
I weave with pictures
when I am capturing an image
in my photography,
I weave love and attention to detail
as I take care of my
I weave with romance
when loving my husband,
I weave with love and care
when watching over
my four children,
I weave magic into my art,
creating beauty along the way.
