My life is not just weaving, knitting and getting arrested for demonstrating.
I adore going skiing and this winter I have only gone X country skiing in various weather. I am throwing in a few pics from this winters skiing trips. Only day trips, haven't been on an expedition this year. But the short tours have been wonderful for body and mind. I need to get out moving to be able to sit and knit, weave or draw. Same for writing. I use the bicycle a lot in town, it is economic, environmental friendly and I get exercise.
Sometimes I go skiing with friend and just as often on my own. I like both. I tend to talk a lot when going with friends, might be doing that be because I spend a lot of time by myself in the studio? I am always hoping I am not talking their ears to bits.
When I go on my own I sometimes photograph myself and end up headless!
The little brook that is breaking out of the snow, the winter grass on the banks. That is an idea. Of something.
