In the Time of Story

I'm reading a book, The Iron Ring, by Lloyd Alexander. I needed a good story to
rest in .It's about a king who thinks of his people first. It's about honor, selfless effort and
keeping your word. It's an inspiring place to rest awhile.

Like bricks in a wall

Large from many smalls. All these small moments were floating apart. They made
sense together as a quilt top. Maybe a 2 sided quilt reminding me of this sewing journey.

Creatures appearing.

Pearl Divers

My best friend, Toshiko, in San Diego worked as a pearl diver at a tourist center.
Pearl diving is a skilled occupation in Japan and has been for hundreds of years. By
coincidence I found a pre ww2  Japanese magazine with a silk screen print of pearl
divers. I made a cloth around it then added embroidery.

Ocean story and walking

Just finished this.

I'm patiently watching for a new way, meanwhile just continuing.
New ways of seeing usually happen out of the blue when I'm just out walking.

A patch I just noticed.

Familiar face of an old friend.


A walk is good medicine.
All of you please take good care.

More books Minnette Walters

I read these in Feb. Great reads, timely (plague time in 1300 England)
and hopeful reads. These are the first 2 books of a trilogy not yet complete.

I say hopeful because in the day to day decisions a wise woman ruler
and her people took power back instead of being afraid or superstitious. At the
end they kept good health and thrived. They changed society from the top (and
middle) power down, established herbal medicine and intuitive disease
management and fed themselves because they cooperated together.
