Walking along beneath a big umbrella in the rain that has been dumping inches all week, and I couldn’t be happier about that. I’ve got a lot of thoughts I want to write about in the coming weeks, but want to pace myself through them so I’m not spent way before my new design is ready. As I mentioned nearly every recent post, I’m entertaining myself connecting elements into a sort of sprawling theme, of veils & variations, and whatever else jumps in my way to shape it as it goes, and let me tell you, I’ve got a great heap of knitting to do before I’m finished with it, but I want to take the time it demands and give it my best.
While I knit I have been contemplating with great nostalgia to be back in my house again, moving between the rooms, and the sun beams through the windows. But the situation requires I wait many months yet, so I’m trying very hard to concentrate on the present moment. Today I’ve had a beautiful walk through the woods, retracing my old trails again and seeing the forest heal a little more, and life is good.
all the lovely layers of a forest coming back to life. Decaying leaves, bits of bark and moss, seeds dropped along the way, and the trailings of all the forest creatures. Bliss!
Yes, bliss! I have forgotten how good walking “under the neath” of a big umbrella feels! 🙂 xx
You got me!! Under the neath. Hehehehehe. xoxoxo
How lovely to see that ground soaking up all of the glorious rain!
Paths, meanderings, veils!
I have some a couple of Victorian veil “beads”. Beautiful little chiffon/silk covered torpedo shapes with a loop! They hung from ladies veils to keep the fabric in place in the wind.
Such a beautiful word “veil”.
Enjoy that rain and the retrieval of paths passed.
I agree, veil is such intriguing word. Brace yourself for some veil posts!
