Inspired by Sea


It is a great blessing to have so much musing time while I work – in fact it is guaranteed that in the course of the day I have hours when I can just be, and do.

So while I was cutting seventy-five yards of fabric (in batches, otherwise I lose track), I found my mind returning to Santa Cruz and the strange visceral tug of attraction and repulsion standing over deep, green water. From above the sea lions seem friendly, playful – but would they be if I were swimming amongst them? I would want to swim like them, not splashing and thrashing, in clothes!

Most of all my mind returns to the colour of the water, that deep, lucent green. I might think of it for a couple of days yet. And the seals, who toil not, neither do they spin, neither do they worry about their waistlines.

    Beautiful thoughts…I will bet you will be sewing some pillows in that deep translucent sea green in the near future.
