I love these stones....the weight....the way they are shaped and drilled.....they bring me back to the steel washers I used to use way back when I used to weave....and the marks on the pottery are divine.....

Your travel writing is interesting to me. I am traveling at present, and although I have been blogging a bit, and stitching a bit, I find that the constant new things that surround me, the conversations with new people etc..make me dumb. Dumb as in not being able to write. Dumb founded - because of all the newness? Numb because I don't have the solitude I am used to?
This post and another one you wrote while travelling have inspired me to continue to search for my own thoughts deep within. And share them.

i can see why you were inspired. the weights cause my heart to quicken because i'm no weaver, but they remind me of something a friend made me recently. knowing of my passion for teardrops, she crafted me one that looks about this size, strung it on a ribbon, and mailed it to me. i'm sending her over here for a looksee.
