Hi! I know, I haven't blogged in... well, nine months. How's 2012 treating you? My year has been pretty strange. After three years, I left my job in June (and it was pretty all-consuming up until then) and have been doing some freelance and consulting work and trying to determine the next mission, adventure, experience, direction, and how and where to make a living. It was a summer of heat and fires and drought here, and autumn is a lovely relief (albeit a temporary one, if the climate change scientists are correct).
I did just have a beautiful nine days in Washington, DC, where I gave a presentation on Slow Cloth at the Textile Society symposium. I've put the talk and slides into PDF form and you are welcome to download it and share it. The file is about 4.5 MB.
Meanwhile, obviously, I have not successfully rebooted this blog on WordPress yet. I still hope to do that but right now I'm evaluating everything and will need to let some things go or transform them into what works now.
Enjoy the PDF. As you'll see, over the past few years many wonderful people have given me permission to use their images as examples of the spirit of Slow Cloth, and I'm very grateful. I welcome and appreciate your feedback.
