snow disappearing

 thaw on the weekend
ochre/gold
 some light dancing
that same sky!
 i sampled
spinning thin kozo and thick lokta 
 thread
 holy words
printed gently
  kozo and lokta
(and damned silly numbers-
been playing with the camera)
 lokta and kozo
grey birch and snowmelt
still some flu, but coming around slowly

lovely pictures, wonderful thread. I'm spinning lokta, too. I feel a connection :)

I love the images of the spun paper... and how the colours are echoes in the snow melt.... words/ image/ paper melting and reassembling.... snow melting and land reassembling...

The lokta and kozo seem to have come out of your landscape, your season.

V-I love the ochre-gold image - so full of warmth and promise. B

jean, YAYAYAY!
ronnie, yes, the colors do echo the season. interesting, that.
neki, i am stunned by this beautiful place.
faisal, yes, well both could (possibly) grow here, certainly kozo could.
barry, yes, that image is funny, because it really reflects the sky dance, not the snow dance below.

It's been a particularly clingy flu. I hope you are rid of all traces of it soon. Loving the colours in this post and especially in the last image.
