Sjoekie Eleven today....as wild as the first day.......

a nice walk in the dunes where I can be off leash and role freely, no matter if  the pineapple needles
destroy my fine coiffure.....
I am who I am

......sjoekie.......

power of nature


It's difficult to combine the picture with I want to say.
As you can see , this piece of cloth is not finished. It looks a little like mother earth for me, and made me think about what's going on today.
Hurricanes, bombs, climate changes, climate tops, earthquakes, deforestation, mudstreams, refugees, richer than rich......
we want.....but

MOTHER EARTH STRIKES BACK

stargazing

a couple of weeks ago i broke my wrist and had a nasty concussion
in stead of stitching, patching, reading etc....seeing double


i play a little with photoshop
no blue eye but sparkling


from he sweet healing hands of Martine came this happy bee artwork and if i lay it on the sore wrist or head it really soothes the pain

Martine works wonders!

it will take some time to return here so

mysteries




the picture above needed some changes
result...picture below ????
really changed.....
but that's not what I really want to say

 the  pain in my back and leg      overwhelmes me sometimes, no meditation, yoga position, positive thinking , thinking how many people suffer more severe problems, how good my life is,  can help me and sometimes I feel so helpless, I almost feel panic coming up.
The real acceptance is far away than.
                                                                     


suggestions please.....

hide and seek



while I was reading a book named ......if I forget Jeruzalem from Werner Sonne, the line about hiding your problems..made me think....

if I'm sad, really sad, is reading than hiding?

I hope it's more a mindtranslation ( does this word exist? )
it changes my sadness for a moment and I don't think it's hiding...you?

the picture is from a little carding wool and silk noil for making a small felt item

balance

yesterday I was taking pictures in the garden.
looking better I saw something so perfect

for me Tao├»sme means perfect harmony   in everything....not static but in everlasting changing
balance 
it changes all the time and nothing can excist without its opposite

 I still miss tovke, my dog, so much.
it still hurts so much

this is Tao for me.........

isn't that soothing........

FREE

the fifth of may we used to celebrate  the end of ww 2
it became a larger event
as we honor all death died in every war, we celebrate now freedom as being free

from the bed i lay on i hear the music in the distance, music from the festifal for freedom where i used to go to before my back accident.
such good memories.......

today at the blog from Grace windthread.typepad.com 
 she wrote about feeling free when the wind blowes ( very free interpretation )
she sent me a while ago a pouche/talisman/little baggy where i put all my free thoughts in.
it's so beautiful that my eye catches  it very often so you can imagine how much free moments i have.....if you could feel it..wow
can you see the little figure Grace in it?
free as the wind takes me

there is no other way than the own way ( Spinoza



it sounds simple but it takes lots of effort to walk the way while you know you don't have influence
that you walk only for yourself, not thinking....do they like me...etc
it is not simple

10 years since Noud died and Blaf was born

a year after Noud died we, the people who loved him, made this cloth.
I like it very much because there are so many elements showing the relations to each other



on the day Noud died, Blaf was born
the picture here was at my former sudio...we were felting she was demolishing



thank you all our friends helping us where possible,

Surprises of 2016... Soon to be seen


 
      
                             
                            



Hope is the thing with feathers
That perchez in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all

Emily Dickinson

Solstice....the light comes back

Actually mankind wants the same
Love and respect
Please look at the things that are the same
Not to the differences
Help each other
Please....?



Het licht komt weer terug, of wordt geboren.
Het wordt me steeds duidelijker hoe we als " mensheid " toch allemaal hetzelfde willen.
Liefde erkenning respekt warmte
Maar hoe we elkaar de ruimte moeten geven???
Alsjeblieft respecteer elkaars gewoontes
Kijk naar wat verbind
Niet naar wat anders is.....
Alsjeblieft........

Miracles are not contrary to nature but only contrary what we know about nature

Wonderen zijn niet in tegenspraak met de natuur. Ze zijn slechts in tegenspraak met wat we over de natuur weten.(Augustinus)


I love this!
But it came as a surprise while working with leaves and cloth.

Storm

Here is it's going to storm so hold each other firm


These fibers hold each other so strong  they became felt

 
                                                                    

To me this cloth looks a bit like a tree.......
