Exhaustion

Exhaustion, fatigue, just plain old tired….

I don’t hate much, but these three I hate. HATE.

My creative verve feels drawn out like an old Englishman being readied for death by quartering…

okay, maybe that is a bit much, but surely, all you creatives out there know what I mean?

Time for my loom.

Time to color a mandala.

Time to play with beads.

Time to alter some skirts and trousers.

The time has been eaten up by the fatigue.

And yet, this peacock can still spread her feathers…I can flaunt my turquoise, teal, cobalt, sapphire, emerald, onyx, an some occasional ruby.

The creative gene can sing an opera of color even on days when the hands can do little else.

Okay wardrobe–are you ready?  Who’s coming with me???

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
