the moon is ....

"the moon is.....

..... the roof of the world" she said

"no" he replied

"it is the earth beneath your feet"

"maybe" the girl pondered,

"just maybe.....

........ it can be both"

not so linear ...

the thing about experience is that it feels linear


i suspect experiences are like memories


don't follow a line at all...

they are multi-layered and collapse in on each other.. and concertina out in different configurations when we remember different ways depending in why we remember them ...

so it is with this journey cloth ....

i remember making this section and thinking about the many crosses in the city of paris

and the many footsteps i had left there

along with the multitude of layers the city has
and the circles i searched for
and found
how all seemed old
and pulsing with life .......

footsteps of love in there ....

the cloth is '87 vintage.. from my art school days made during a strange and fragmenting time..
.. the decision to repurpose this piece means that it becomes relevant to my life now .... by treading again over this territory, i found myself savouring the old and celebrating the new.. feeling love for what was .... and for what is

long journey complete

again on the floor
where it began

steps and spires
layers and stitch

make up this journey
and the memories

are rolled


this has been a dream

something to treasure

a pleasure to travel

a joy to recall
