Awesome! I'm hoping that one of my cloth diapers can be indigo dyed :)

She is peeking through, there but not. "All of It"...I do not think I have ever thought of August this way before. But it is just that, everything. As a child and much of my adult life too, August was the end of summer and the beginning of the school year, but I don't think I ever realized it quite like this!

Yes Grace, maybe we hold it til it needs to be let out. Or sometimes just let it out right away. there are so many ways to do this life thing. I think of your numbing it out words and I think that I have never numbed, usually feel to much. But I know many who have numbed with drink or drug or business and more. (((hugs))) Nancy

Oh this is a grand web! And a beautiful photo of it. I always have such trouble capturing what I see in a photo when it comes to webs.

I too wonder about their shoot skills and goals. They could aim different, I just know it. But Why don't they? And you experience with the boys...interesting how easy it is to go from peaceful with cloth to curse words and confrontation. This 'she-bear' effect makes me feel for all in Gaza, who want to hold on to, or protect, or ? It seems to be a deep seated trait of humans, that genetic, gut reaction...Mmmm. Must think about that more. And yes, last night I was able to put words here that I usually save for conversations with friends or boyfriend or children. I know how you honor the putting out there all of the elements of life, even the bad and hard. It is good to be able to have those conversations, but I also honor those that do not or can not put all of it out there or must word it ever so carefully (like me). Not that it would ever be known, really, but I still work and get judged and can't feel safe to be authentic in workplaces. A long story that I choose not to share in the vast online world. I share what, when I can or need to. I share at other's blog homes more freely than at my home. Hard to fully explain. But I honor my ways too, because we all have to do what feels best and right for each of us. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, I know I can share here and be heard in kindness and that feels good. Goodnight.

I do think, but I am still learning about that. My daughter and I have wonderful discussions about what we create for ourselves in this Universe!

Beautiful Michelle. And really nothing and everything are normal.

I think of you some days with your New Tay and I think how grand it would be to have a dog to build a relationship with. My guys says at least once, twice maybe, times a week how much he wants a dog, how this is the longest time he's gone without a dog (since about 1997). But landlords don't allow and we can't afford, a move or a pet really. So we watch the birds and bugs...and the neighbors chickens & turkey...and now her male bunny who got her female pregnant and then dug his way out of her yard and has been living outside our front door ever since! And yes, that was the longest sentence on record!!! Its nice to read your good.

Grace~ Everyone~ Your words, comments, bringing tears to my eyes. So Hard to be a witness to it all, but yet can't stop...don't want to, need to know...because of that "happening still". I sometimes think "Have we learned Nothing"...the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird" flashes in my head, that courtroom, the wrongness of that accusation and the end result and I think why can't we learn, from stories wisely told...from our own history??? Then I listen to the news of the World and it is too scary and I feel helpless. And I, like Yvette that anti semitism is really - still, not too far away. I've heard it recently in my own workplace. Reported it. "Oh no I didn't mean that! I have family members married to Jews". My gut tells me different. Daughter's friend, Syrian. I read her viewpoint. She moved back there in second grade and lived in Egypt and other locales, thinks like us (meaning the women here in the Spirit World circle). How must these events feel to her? And like Michelle, I see things too nearby. Yesterday a detour on the way to work, a man shot dead in his truck. Why? By whom? ANd like Debbie, feeling unable to completely trust due to childhood scars. And sometimes it is all too much and I have to not look and not listen for a little while, so I listen to music that feeds my soul while I drive through the not always safe area, windows up, doors locked, on my way to work each day. (((sigh))) I guess I needed to get that off my chest.

That picture with the blue-ish lights (second to last)...I love it and remember those lights in photos from a long time back, so mysterious to me. The light at your place really is fine. I'm jumping around here, catching up (sorta, but never fully can) in some odd out of order thing. So now I've discovered that this cloth has been coming along, changing for more days that I realized when I just posted my comment on yesterday's post. But, I stand by my comment, it jumped out at me as her!

Grace, I read those words as to say that everything has many sides and that we may not see all of them at once (in one day), but may have different sides show themselves over time. So, maybe still our (your) own View Point, but that even your own view point can shift and change over time. And I like and am considering your interpretation of her words too. And I think her photo shows a creativity and kindness in her. She looks like a good spirit to me. This may read silly, but that was my first thought upon looking. And her name is Sparrow? I like that name. I was just thinking the other day that if were to pick my own name, what would I choose? I never have an answer to that question (so far). So, anyway, this is her, your friend from your other part. My parts don't mix either. But know that she has shown herself, maybe she will join the conversations. And this cloth that made me gasp in the first pic (like that configuration best) looks like her, your human being! I like that this cloth has one eye opened in wonder and one eye shadowed in wisdom. She is gorgeous and really touched me. Good evening to you Grace.
Loved this link Mo. Thanks.

I'm thinking about how much I like the way that you capture space and movement. Your stitching gives me anything but the blues! Ha

Yes. If I had my children to raise again, I'd do this. So, a big yes. Have a great time camping and enjoying the last wisp of summer.

Happy retirement to you and lucky you indeed getting to see your grandson so often. I love the boldness of the bug wall...and yes I can see Eric Carle's inspiration there.

Your blues are beautiful. I've not read any of the 3 except The Giver, which I adore and count among one of my favorite books.
