i'll tell you- i missed the full moon this past weekend but i did spend saturday floating down the river in an inner tube. when we finally got back to shore my legs were wobbly and i thought i could sleep for days. then it rained hard yesterday, last night. there was even a brief moment of tornado warning but no tornado. my focus is fickle. while hand sewing i prick my fingers too many times and feel angry with the needle.

art and object, made and found
a few things in the shop today
Try to Praise the Mutilated World
Try to praise the mutilated world.
Remember June's long days,
and wild strawberries, drops of rosé wine.
The nettles that methodically overgrow
the abandoned homesteads of exiles.
You must praise the mutilated world.
You watched the stylish yachts and ships;
one of them had a long trip ahead of it,
while salty oblivion awaited others.
You've seen the refugees going nowhere,
you've heard the executioners sing joyfully.
You should praise the mutilated world.
Remember the moments when we were together
in a white room and the curtain fluttered.
Return in thought to the concert where music flared.
You gathered acorns in the park in autumn
and leaves eddied over the earth's scars.
Praise the mutilated world
and the gray feather a thrush lost,
and the gentle light that strays and vanishes

i'm excited to get these into the shop today- several color ways of hair wrap/head bands. they're made of the same organic cotton hemp jersey i make the scarves with and they can be worn lots of ways. they're hand-dyed and have a hand stitched hem. made with love, here.
