Last month, I checked the Farmer’s Almanac and it suggested that we would have more “weather events” this month than last and I really questioned it. Last week we were moving into the “balmy” it seemed, making it possible to attend the opening of the Gregg’s Remnant’s of the Floating World installed at NCSU’s Chancellor’s Residence (their future site). There’s much to see in this exhibit, couldn’t take it all in, in the one evening, so I will return at some point.
A few days later, I received a small and precious gift through a friend – a fine example of kumo shibori (spider
web pattern) bound up, in preparation for dyeing. That was the supposed next step, but I find that I can’t bring myself to do it. I simply love the piece as is. It doesn’t need the color or completion. There is so much to be learned from studying those small, fine, bound up forms.
Then yesterday, “that” anticipated weather event finally arrived. It brought both snow and ice and we expect a little more today. It has brought some inconvenience, but that’s winter, that’s nature. It will also melt (par for the south).
