happy/healthy/teaching

 i washed and froze the bloodroot (finally).
 waiting so long meant i lost some to rot. stupid waste.
 health issues this week have once again surprised me. 
the good news is that the weird dizziness is caused by an inner ear thing...
... that physical therapy has assisted. not an ear infection. YAY. 
lots of driving today to get to p.t. and car dealer and a very long wait (for a little issue). 
good news was in the mail.
 she writes my story
 a hanji gift from aimee
 she's exploring some new book ideas
nifty closures
the inside, cords, dak, hanji
also
the morgan class is on (there's room for you if you'd like to come)
the papermaking class, and the talks in washington (state) are on
and i am looking forward to these SO MUCH!

yay! i'm glad that mailbox not very many paces away from home works. i always suspect new mailboxes. so glad about knowing now it's an imbalance and not infection! i am already ready for another visit to return your book and bring you a new one. but that will have to wait for a bit. cleveland will be divine.

your blog title came up on my blogroll as
tea ching
i thought you were doing some sort of fancy Chinese paper making. i had to laugh, i love it when common words look uncommon.

V- great to have such supportive positive vibes. Love the bloodroot photo - thought it was a big buckets of cooked seafood (shrimps) at first. Create well with the roots; and we can't be too hard on ourselves - we all try to fit so much into our lives - so there will always be a bit of dropping off - a bit of rot. Go well. B
