Come and spin a yarn

“Hard is trying to rebuild yourself, piece by piece, with no instruction book, and no clue as to where all the important bits are supposed to go.” 
― Nick Hornby

This year I'm on sabbatical from the world of "professional" art. All the dramatics, looking for funding, and personal issues going on behind the scenes, were making me a very unhappy person. It was a good run, and most artists cannot even come close to the wonderful experiences I've had. But when it is time to is just time to quit. And because I have a touch of the "wishy-washy," there has been five years of fence sitting that made my body/mind/soul a full on hot mess.

Since forever I've been in love with fiber, textiles, weaving, and so on. My heart loves the stories embedded in each little piece. This goes along with my work as a professional storyteller, and I'm currently working on a way to weave the two together so that others can learn how to share their stories in fiber/fabric.

The past two months of my little break have been spent cleaning up every place I've made an account/profile on the internet. While I've not fixed them all, nearly 90% are cleaned/cleared out. Now I'm just down to this work, Yarn and Zen, and the page for our family homestead (Green Being Farm).

In the next few days I'll update my "about" tab, as well as add some more fun and wonderful links to the right.

Much love,
~ Kim aka Yarn and Zen
