Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

January 9, 2011

I have already started on the 2011 Bead Journal Project. In fact, my January piece is completed except for framing. I am making 6.5" x 6.5" mini art quilts. Each will draw inspiration from ancient native design or myth. I may incorporate paint, yarns, found objects as I work -- after all, my personal goal from this project is to explore and push myself. Of course, beads will be the predominant element. Each mini quilt will be framed on an 8" x 8" stretched canvas that I will paint to complement the mini quilt.
