No one ever melted from the rain.
Many years ago, I took a workshop near Ashcroft, Colorado that was lead by Stuart Mace. We were to hike in the ancient forest and as we arrived, the skies opened and the rain fell. We were an eclectic group, quite a few from eastern cities not used to hiking in the rain. Stuart smiled and offered the above words of wisdom as we set off on what proved to be a most magical hike. They have stayed with me ever since.
This was a relatively rainy week here in Spokane. I have learned to embrace these days – the more rain now, the better for us during fire season. I did venture out, despite the moisture. Here are a few photos of the rich images that lay await in our forest.
Much of fiber related time this week was spent in more behind the scenes work. My website is now updated and I have sent in a few show entries. None of this would have been possible without the help of Barbara Chase of Fine Art Photography who captured images of my new works. You might say that my latest, Celtic Coast, fit well with our weather this week.
Inspired by the west coast of Ireland, I leave you with a traditional gaelic blessing:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
