love my dahlias!

summer is almost over and the flowers are quickly fading. soon it will be cool rain and very little sunshine. received the pattern for a corset knit-along. tomorrow i'll be shopping around for the fiber to make it! so exciting to start something that has some shape and class.

values vs being popular

if there's anything more tiring to my soul than to question another's intentions. yet, i seem to spend a great deal of time wondering why waste time gathering information at all. eventually truth comes to light. it's no wonder that as a species we have not wiped ourselves out. today i send out love to those who do not know that they are spirit along with their body. their soul demands it's own food. along my path i hope that i can ease the discomfort of being misunderstood. essentially all that really matters in life remains buried deep within our psyche; it is my job to excavate it at my own pace and with my own tools.

my little maui

my true calling in life is the simple life. i love the meditativeness, introspection and acceptance of self that i discovered while living there. i miss the ocean and the sound of the swaying palms... my sister, who's lived there for several years loves it for her sanity and soon she maybe getting married! it'll be like coming home and i can't think of a more romantic place than maui to celebrate life. just ordered my first fancy pattern from and will be doing my best on the knit-along of the silk ribbed lace corset. also, started a red halter for practice on altering a pattern. pretty excited as my LYS has drop spindles and i want to learn to spin. so much to do and so little time.
