BY the light of the Lantern
Thank you all for your good wishes and positive thoughts yesterday- my emotions are very much a part of my creative process and I think this is exacerbated by working from home as well- I am always right in the middle of it and there is really nowhere to find a space away from it.It also means I work in relative isolation, rarely interacting with like minded people except when I go away to teach ( and I have to say blogging has been a bit of a godsend in meeting like minded people) It also means that everyone always thinks you are accessible because many people don't think of you as having a job when your work number is the same as your home number. I have looked but there is nothing available locally as a work space. Today yurts reappeared on my radar for thinking material.
Anyway last night I found a page on Wietse Kluck's blog.It cheered me up a lot to know that my work does inspire people sufficiently for them to want to do a C&G page on my work.Check out Wietske's work -it's wonderful.
I sliced my thumb rather badly yesterday whilst cutting vegies from the garden to make a minestrone. It bled profusely- and I really should have gone to emergency as it did need a stitch or two- but an acquaintance had a seven hour wait there last week- and the thought of having to drive 22 kms to town and then wait made me think again- do you know how hard it is to elevate your thumb above your head so that the wound has time to clot ??It took more than an hour.It's right at the base of the pad of my thumb just above the joint- we could see the bone- eewww- so that will curtail whatever I was planning for awhile- I can't hand sew because you use your thumb a lot for this even your left thumb.
