antidote

 this book was made to mark 31 days of august
 each shifu page is a place holder, a day keeper
 some are paintings, or in this case a "dyeing".
a list within a list, keeping time
then i was contemplating, along with some others, dots.
thank you everyone for the antidotes.
i am ok, struggling is a good thing, in my book, 
but that doesn't mean i like it.

ronnie, the longer i've lived with this book, the more i like it. it's been around two years now, i think, and is a wonderful record of a summer.

Velma, there seems to have been alot of work gone into thie 'simple' object. Is that so? I love its tiny size and the entirely hand-crafted feeling of it...and every page seems unique. It looks like the sort of thing that has alot of personal value.

Velma said...

yes, joni, i spun and wove the pages first, then responded on each page to what the day brought me.
