On other continents
Struggling with stress but attempting different priorities: yoga daily, more down time, allowing myself not to work. I keep forgetting to share my sadness at losing another in the paper family. I never had the chance to meet him, but he had reached out to me to try to help promote my book in Turkey. I was shocked to hear we had lost him so soon.
Also, I have been following with deep yearning Joanne Kaar's work. She is so truly rooted in place, culture, and handwork, and does remarkable research as well as artwork and collaborations. I loved one of her recent posts and the red socks linked from her blog. So terribly curious about nalbinding, as we enter this last summer holiday weekend. I hear it will be hot, steamy, and crowded, which is exactly not how I like the climate while teaching. But it will be good to share some papermaking joy to close August.
