This is an intense process. It continues to feel like a marathon run, sometimes with a bit of downhill, and sometimes leaving one gasping for breath, and yet I can feel myself building endurance as well as new skills, acquiring new colors.
I love watching the layers of afterimages build. My living room is filled with piles of colored scales- I estimate a little less than a thousand- threaded and unthreaded. I’ve got them sorted by color to try and get a sense of what I need more of, what is sufficient and to get a sense of them as a whole.
The general message is that I need to fill out the light color range. I love the way they look scattered about as each batch gets set aside to dry- like rivers, like rose petals, like autumn leaves. It’s a beautiful process.
Well- so much more to do. Off I go.
