march whatever

oh my.

began the other front fender today. made the pattern, had my count, laid it down, 3 (13),  3, 5,1 ,3 ,1, 5, 3 (13)

then 2, 3(5), 3,1,3,5,3 ,1,3, 3(5)

et cetera

didn’t match up.

took it out.

re-counted.

re-wove,

miss again.

sat down.

drank tea.

i understand materials such as stones, cedar,wood,want to be something, specific. but this cedar wants a specific pattern. when it doesn’t have it, it gets funny; slippery, brittle; twisty, snappy. it gets mad at the plastic strapping. it gets mad at me and gives me splinters and cuts me under my nails.

march 4

my parents anniversary. 58 years, she’s been gone for three.

it feels that it may take me that long to finish this weaving.

well, all right then.

a stitch at a time, a day at a time, a row at a time.

how long, love?

at my job, a magnolia tree cut down while in bloom. peter gathered flowering branches, and now they sit in vases on an office desk.

not patience, acceptance.
