Indigo morning


Indigo scarves
Originally uploaded by SOFennell

There were other things I probably could have been doing this morning, but decided on a whim to use the vat sitting in the garage. It was ready to go, and it wasn’t storming as predicted. Fortunately, I had the morning.

I’ve been watching the weather maps and keeping an eye on warnings all morning. Weather like this makes me a little nervous these days.  At the moment, I’m hearing some rumbling in the distance.  It seems to come and go like the little bands of sprinkles that move through.

A little culture & “vocab” in context:

wind – kaze – かぜ・風

windy day – kaze no tsuyoi hi – 風のつよい日

風雨 – ふうう- fuu – wind and rain;

強風 【きょうふう】kyoufuu – strong wind

暴風雨 【ぼうふうう】boufuu – storm

風師 【ふうし】boushi –  wind god

Also a proverb:

風にあたった者はかしこくなる。

Kaze ni atatta mono wa kashikoku naru. 

The wind in one’s face makes one wise.

      Hi Jennifer! Thank you for your comments. I go back and forth between the “synthetic” and natural fermentation vat – it depends on what day it is or something like that. Your pieces are also lovely. I like your memorial flags and also your indigo piece – magical!
