Yesterday evening, in a no-nonsense-mood it seems,
I made a little nine-patch Calmer...

A very good week to everyone...!

"No world is intact
and no one cares about you.

I leaned down over
don’t care about, I care about
I leaned down over the

world in portrayal
of carefulness, answering

something you couldn’t say.
walking or fallen and you
were supposed
to give therapy to me—

me leaning down
brushing with painted feathers
to the left chance your operatic,


(Alice Notley: No world is intact)

Perhaps were in synch today - I think caring makes a difference, but only when we let go of the idea of fixing things...because fixing also means pinning something permanently. Small repairs are possible, and participation in them brings something like peace.

Such a perfect word for a calmer...no is necessary for calmness sometimes.

You´re absolutely right, all three... ;)

"No" is such a simple word...
yet it is hard for us to say sometimes. I agree with Deb.
Sometimes "no" is necessary for peace.

Yes, it is...

I am so curious to know why it is called a calmer?

Certainly makes one calm to stitch, and makes one

calm to look at and feel it...

That´s why I somewhen started to call them Calmers, yes... ;)
