Lost in Fiber artifacts on the road in the Hudson Valley of New York State
Even though I have been back from Bulgaria for close to three months, I have not been able to set aside time to visit the Hudson Valley and the landscape that is such a part of my rural childhood and creative vision.

Last weekend I was finally able to set off on a thirty-six hour retreat to stay at the Hotel Tivoli in Dutchess County, New York, while also exploring the local offerings of nearby Hudson.

It is so interesting to me how the quality of a region's light (and hues) say so much about a place and the memories that we have stored away as mini-films that we might replay when home again or in the zone. This small selection of photos is a preview of a special Lost in Fiber photoshoot that I did while upstate.
There will be more of these site-specific, artifact/textile focused narratives as 2015 unfolds. For now, I am relieved to know that some things never change – even with the unsettling news stories that we are confronted with each day.
