Going Round in Circles

The present was as round and full as a sphere and it warmed me many times over. Jacques Lusseyran

I notice that I am working in and photographing circles. Circles hold things in, represent eternity, and can be comforting. Circles can change you from the inside out like walking a labyrinth.

This first circle involves my hand embroidery on a vintage christening dress. The needle pricks and the thread holds the old and new together. I collage opaques and sheers of leaf dying, screen-printing, ink drawing, vintage lace, and photo transfer done by myself and others. Themes appear of raindrops, family, branches, and leaves.

I like to take walks after it rains. The contrast of light and dark made stronger in the grayness of the day. The rain is cold; the thorns hidden.

Circles of sound. This fountain flowing over glass stones creates a peaceful place to read a book. Time out for breaks helped by a watery circle. Life pulses.

End of the day circle within a circle. Do you see it? I like how a photograph catches one moment. Next moment this scene changes. What do circles mean to you?
