thirty six

3636


have hit the inevitable plateau . fifty two week project blues

then I gather raveling fabric . torn words . a pebble to say "thank you"

for staying so many weeks . the birds would not still be here if you were not

I am posting here today on a breeze . memories sifted . while looking up in awe

I was actually wondering, before I read your post, how you were feeling about this project, now 36 weeks in. I guess it's inevitable that sometimes it seems more difficult than others to find the photos, birds, and words. But I have certainly been enjoying it and look forward to the rest.

Plateaus are hard because there isn't much view until you get to the edge .... Hoping the sky opens up for you atop that flattened out high ground.

Hugs, K

I drilled a hole in a rock last week and felt so much opened up for me. May you see much open for you and you'll be off of this plateau. Thank you.
