Every week I try to declare one day a Weave-to-my-Heart’s-Content Day. On these days I give myself permission to let go of the to do list and sink into the joy of weaving.
It’s a day with no commitments, no need to leave the house other than to walk Codi. The only thing on the agenda is weaving. If I decide to do other things –photograph towels, write, run errands – I can, but there’s no pressure, no expectation.
I look forward to these open days when I can focus on starting a new project or weaving what’s already on the loom. I experience a sense of freedom and contentment as I tune into the flow of my energy.
I have decided that I need more days with no commitments other than to weave. In May I wrote about stepping away from my loom for a bit to replenish my tired spirit. The kind of replenishment I need now is to give myself time to fill up with the joy of weaving.
I am taking a little break from writing articles every month so that I can have more weaving time. I am not sure when I will start writing again. It’s possible that the Whimsy-grams will take on a different form when I return.
During this retreat of sorts I will still be in business. I will be at the Northampton Winter Farmers’ Market every other Saturday and I will continue to update my online store and my calendar. I may send an occasional email about events or what I’ve been weaving.
Although I won’t be showing up in your inbox as regularly, I’m still here and would be happy to hear from you with any questions, special requests or feedback.
Wishing you the replenishment you need,
