This blue..rain? Tears? Neither? Love the idea of becoming as it is so open-ended and filled with possibility.
Toggle Commented 6 days ago on with the hope of always becoming at handstories
Grace, I love the treasures Tay is bringing you. So much rain, I can't even imagine that right now. Dry and dusty here, invites asthma. Be safe.

On way to work, the man in a kilt walking his greyhound. See him often on this city street. This intrigues me.

Tracy I'm in SO CA too. Day 6 of over 100. Big puffy humid clouds rim the Valley. We hope for some rain. Air conditioners couldn't keep up today, so very hot at work in the classroom...79 degrees with sticky crying little ones. Long day.

My heart is with you Cindy. I'm glad he was able to go to her. Take care.

I love it...just sew anyway, eh?! I remember the days of ballgames, not with such a great view though!

I stitch in my car on breaks. Sometimes that's all I get. This weekend it was so hot, the last thing I wanted was cloth on top of me! lol

Oh Cindy! I love it all. Perfect.

Love it! We've got these in the classroom and have figured out a couple of good placements where we catch the sun. It's fun to watch the children notice the light for the first time. I love this yarn...it's like a happy party!

I love this cloth so much...and the image of you hiding out with bananas! hang in there, it will calm down, a bit. We've got a new teacher, new baby, a Needs & Service update conference, self-evaluations and a parent meeting that I am presenting at on Wed. No worries.

Haha..."involve getting up" ~ you are a woman after my own heart. I had a baseball boy too...from K-10th grade he lived & breathed baseball. As an 11 year old, he set his alarm for 6AM so he could listen to Dodger Replay! I'd never get up early for anything ever!
Toggle Commented Sep 15, 2014 on can't get here from there at handstories
The light in the first pic...love it! That's how I felt when I was doing the stars on Yvette's cloth, I could have added so many more!

Wow! I would love to see you doing this! Isn't it nice to have something that we feel best at?! The theater reminds me of the one here, where we saw Pete Seeger! What a great time you must have had :)
Oh Cindy...that tree! I love the signs along the way, helpful! Ever since I read The Wild Trees, I look at them so differently. I'm glad you were able to have this time together. http://www.amazon.com/Wild-Trees-Story-Passion-Daring/dp/0812975596/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1410757159&sr=1-1&keywords=the+wild+trees

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.
