Long and winding roads.

Today is the 36th wedding anniversary of my parents. My mom spent the afternoon working with me in the studio and my dad joined us for cake and coffee at “tea time”. He took photos while we worked.

Handspun BFL warp and handspun merino weft

Thirty six years is a long time. I try not to worry too much about the future anymore and there is not a lot you can do about the past, but lately I am reminded of how uncertain all of our futures are. I try not to be anxious. I try to take things as they come and try to be flexible enough to accommodate it all. I don’t know how you could go 36 years ensuring that everything was perfect, manageable and in control. Tread softly, for the path is long and narrow, winding and rocky, and I always seem to be falling down.

    Nothing is perfect :-) Best to take experiences that life throws at us anyway, you’ll look back and realise that it was a great life!!!

    That’s enough of my terrible philosophising (if that’s a word, I’ve probably spelt it wrong LOL)

    By the way, your weaving is REALLY making want to get a little loom…

    Cheers

    I don’t things can stay “perfect, manageable, and in control” for more than a few hours at a stretch (at least that’s my life). I think the key is to hold on to each other (friends, family, partners) through the crests and valleys, press on with the things that make you happiest, and you’ll be able to look back later in life with some satisfaction.

    O Scarf,
    Beauteous in thine handspun loveliness,
    Come away with me…

    I am drooling into my keyboard. I loooove your weaving. And spinning. And dyeing….

    Oh Felicia. If you get an anxiety attack, come down and enjoy the sun in L.A. I’ll pick you up at the airport.

    Hope everything’s all right!

    Happy Anniversary to your parents! =)

    Life is full of uncertainties… but with the strong person that you are and the support of those around you, everything will fall into place … just right. =)
