These projects that I undertake
are all about time.
The passage of time
Marking cloth each day.
This week Time has been on my mind
and of course the pebbles of these Stone Pathways
must be the oldest of Nature's wonders
in this land that I inhabit.
Sometimes my attempts are rather clumsy.
This one deserves a softer, gentler touch
but time is cruel
and marches on despite my desire
to take it back and start again.
Oh, to be able to control time.
Slow it down
To give me more of it.
I remember wishing as a child
that I might be able to
speed up those long seemingly endless school semesters
or terms as we used to call them in my day.
Like prison terms as far as I was concerned.
Then I would have liked to be able to
those glorious periods of freedom from school.
Especially the longer Summertime ones.
A wrinkle in time
Time and cloth come together so often.
Perhaps I should be wrapping these stones in cloth.
Cloth fragments layered and stitched.
Stitch a mark every day.
