martha stewart speaks to me in my dreams

Please, thanks #1, originally uploaded by Kim's Suitcase.

martha stewart took me over to the home of an extremly wealthy friend.

in order to further get into the house there was a humungos waterfall
let's say the same size as niagara falls

i was to say the least taken aback
the deluge would kill
or would it..

martha was very encouraging
told me it was just an illusion,
a security device and to walk through it
'just walk through it'
said martha, gently guiding me with one arm around my shoulder

i was really frightened
a water fall the size of niagara
but with martha's kind words and gently but firm persuasion
i did just that

'oh my god' i exclaimed it was just an illusion....


great news by the way,
i have recently been told i have been accepted into the christmas
one of a kind show here in toronto....

oh martha give me strenght!!

no ledge

no ledge, originally uploaded by Kim's Suitcase.

so much to tell
quiet bird twitter
of backyard sanctuary
about a million shades of green
trees make a wall
puzzle pieces of blue sky
jig saw cut sunlight
and fluff of the tree
that is sending off
a zillion puffy seeds
gathered up like fish eggs
salmon row, only white
air, no liquid space

i am thinking about
the spaces in between
textiles that show the
weave like summer linen
textiles made up of space
like lace

i have so much to tell
pregnant with stories
new experiences and
powerful dreams

let things come to you

from a 'yogi' tea bag
ginger raspberry flavour

today a day off has come to me.
my workshop having been cancelled.
oh well.

a day off, hmmh been having a few of those lately
being well.

out of the no frills came simon,
an old friend who i brought home for tea
and back yard enjoyment.

he told excellent stories,
as he always does

i had been thinking of him,
and that day he me...
and well then we had tea!

the other day i called kathleen
and we meet in the park,
with her beautiful threeee
year old louisa and my wee
dog owen, we romped
and then backyarded in her
backyard and i had a lovely lunch
and we talked turkey, literally 'cause
kathleen a film maker went to show her
film in a feminist film festival in turkey
her film is a short called 'lost things'
a very thought provoking short,
honoured to have done the illustration for her poster,
i might mention
any way organic eggs are way yellow
and taste awesome

gave owen a bath the other day
on the impulse cause he was
watching me so enjoy the tub
and grabbed my pal bay's
handmade shampoo bar soap
then all the dogs loved him more
and thought he smelled too delicious

today is sunny and the air is clear
and all the little doggies frolicked
and things came to me like space
and stretch and wellness
and it is all well just excellent.

really i am not a polly anna with
rose coloured glasses, it's just
that moment to moment
air and sun can be so so fine.

to you!!
