Spent the first half of today wandering in this sea, trying to listen and learn from the process. ox
Toggle Commented yesterday on shaping a sea at handstories
We learned some wonderful ideas for opening our time with children, too. Last night talking with a friend, about teaching, how we need these kinds of layers of connections to reach these kids, but how time & constraints of the content we're supposed to be teaching limit the ability to do much, which hinders the ability for them to connect with the "content".

There's not much better than a good picture book, with layers of images and words to read between- your place is one of my favorites.... (you've reminded me of another favorite, "A River of Words" a book about William Carlos Williams & his poetry. )

The water on the "Child Cloth" is being built backwards, starting with the piece outlined in darker blue in the center, then the strip in front, adding behind both of them to the right, and finally to the left, all in the wrong order, requiring un-stitching, fiddling and shoving in...

It's a pretty remote island, there's one building that's a restaurant/gas station/tiny store. We've been going there for years, a friend used to own a cabin, now we rent a one. It's also a nice day trip to sit on the beach for a break. We used to go to the San Juans, but the ferry got to be too much to deal with. Glad you're happy with the cards!

We're back from Guemes Island. Blue found a piece of lavender sea glass. There was some time at Square Harbor, where the guys threw rocks, sticks, rocks at sticks, and hit rocks with sticks, as they do every time we're near water. There were sunsets, stars, owl calls, herons in... Continue reading

Thanks for the info, Dakotah, hopefully he has learned his lesson and we won't need to do this ever again!

"Piece of Mind" by Moon. Sometime in early May, Moon asked what I wanted for Mother's Day. "Peace of mind," I told him. When we finally got around to "celebrating" the occasion (which happened to be on Father's Day, which tells you a little about the state of things around... Continue reading

Someday, I hope to do fresh indigo... SO happy about the change in weather. We're heading to Guemes tomorrow, hoping for a cool rainy evening.
