hand made paper, shifu, artists' books, north country living, and some words
Nice to hear your voice (and, yes, I could hear your sinus-ness) and to see Wendy and some of your plants! Cool that you have a black walnut there.... hope you got some good rain.
Velma~ I loved this little tour today! You have the way of a storyteller, your voice, your movement & the things you choose to share.Thank you I needed this today :)
valerie, it might actually be a butternut tree, i don't know for sure.nancy, thank you. it's so poorly done, but i figured you all would forgive me.
Very beautiful, Velma.Brought tears to my eyes.Loved,Claudia
..It's past midnight here now...but this candid little video felt just like walking with you and Wendy in the early hours of morning...nice to include how long you have lived on that piece of land...gives depth to it, and allows us to understand more..a gentle undercurrent of sadness in your voice toward the end makes the connection even deeper, and pulls us closer.It's lovely
thanks, claudiams. thank you. so amateurish, sigh.
Hey V.If it were 'slick', it wouldn't be as touching/moving. It is real.It is perfect just the way it is...a true reflection of you and your life on the farm and your love of the property/land.Keep warm.claudia
thanks, dear one!
love the way you are "naming" your world and its twined life with your life...you are very beautiful
it is hard to film, at first, but even harder to express yourself at the same time. and you did that perfectly.
m, when i first moved to this area i was obsessed with learning the plants. and thank you.jude, i think a slightly better camera would help, but thank you. you're my inspiration!
I felt as though I was right by your side hearing the crunch of the dried grasses, the change in the weather. Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed seeing your daily inspiration and raw materials. Today I made cordage from cattail; yesterday I woven the leaves for a book cover, the day before made paper from the stems and fluff. We mirror and reflect the world around us. It is good.
Lovely to hear your voice again Velma.You have a beautiful piece of earth and it is obvious you treasure it. Enjoy.
I came home from the city tired and hungry - it was wonderful to take a stroll with you and Wendy and hear your voice
Oh what a lovely visit V! I so enjoyed your voice, the vision, the thunder clouds, the plants - so very real even all the way over here...just fab!
V-beautiful, creative,delicate, textured and colour filled book. B
Hi V - I thought I left a comment a few days ago but blogger must have eaten it. Sigh. I loved this wander about your place and all the different plants and fibres...and hearing your voice! Go well.
