a little bereft

aimee and her scarf
aimee left today, and wendy is feeling bereft. 
me, too. 
we were ok with each other in my space.
 we made slippery elm paper last night. actually only a little, because we were both tired. 
both of us are getting over big stuff, travel, teaching, applications...
slippery elm inner bark cooked with soda ash 
and added bundled cloth and paper samples.

yeah, i thought so. the elm needs help to break down, but it made lovely paper. we washed and washed the fabric....

it's okay, considering all that it fed us. i drove away thinking how special our time was, better, even, than a 'residency residency'. i feel strange not curling up in purple sheets but am comforted to know that you and wendy are still there!

Velma said...

ha! those sheets!

hope it's a good kind of tired and you have warm memories of time spent together.

Sounds like a wonderful shared time - special.
