The photo of the bicycle is very nice. It could enlarged and framed and hang on my living room wall. Thanks!

Dear Elaine,
Thanks so much for the discussion and the links. I feel very much validated; wish I had read this before starting on my trip. I ducked out of several group social activities at the last conference, feeling guilty but liberated, happy to socialize with just one other person or alternatively, to be alone in my room working or catching up on news from the day. Your blog entries are always so rich and full of links -- thanks for the depth. -d (catching up on blog-reading in a hotel room in St. Louis, MO)

From one introvert to another: thank you, for your words and for the link to this article. Both are uplifting.

Thanks for the links to the articles!

Yes. I fit into this model perfectly. Now I am feeling cozy and comfortable staying here too. I really enjoyed reading your ideas on introverted/creative people. Now I know I belong to some group!

    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.

  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
