I've been working on making samples of atcs for a workshop I am scheduled to teach next month. This one has tiny squares with raw edges and is embellished with beads.
This is not what today looks like, although this day does look a little blurry. Today it is raining and cold. I've returned from a memorial gathering for someone who was so kind and generous that when I try to write about her I keep rewriting everything I write because it sounds so trite.
I wish I had spent more time with her and had gone walking with her when I promised I would. She was only 63. I regret that I was so distracted by my own losses and fears and issues that I did not and probably still don't adequately appreciate what I have. What I saw today was a glimpse of the sweet vision she had of her life and home.
