Suddenly I find myself back home in the Pacific Northwest after 7 weeks of travel- launched into an autumnal landscape- ready or not.
If I am totally honest, I really miss the Mediterranean sunshine. So hard to not become addicted to that light and heat. As I acclimate, retraining myself to spend hours at a computer each day and not grumble too much about it; little- or big- things pop up to remind me how amazing my life is, how lucky I am that I get to do what I do and reminding me of the people I get to work with once more now that I am home. Here, in the land that is my chosen home.
Martin Borden just finished this video that is the documentation of the Urban Cloth Project. I have worked with Martin really since this fibre journey began and he was just beginning his own journey into making documentaries. As our work deepens, so does his, and it is such an honour and a pleasure to have him at my side to capture beautiful moments- but also for the added gift of reminding me- when I need reminding- just how incredible this life on the west coast is, thanks Martin.
I have yet to actually finish sorting photos from the work made in Spain. Those images sit inside my computer waiting for a dark rainy night when I need a boost of light, even if just back-lit off a screen.Meanwhile, the work continues, processing fibres, late-season harvesting and prepping for winter workshops with friends. A good life.
