While soaking up the Christmas season, I spun many more anemones. They are building up the reef under the sea dress. Petticoats and underskirts are appearing...unbleached muslin cheesecloth is experimentally draped in the openings. I think, when more energy returns, more lights will appear as well. It is always slow going in "intuitive land", where language has little to add to the equations. It is all about materials and light and growth.

I still have this fascination with suits as symbols of power. I have collected, at 40% off thrift store prices a variety of suit coats that I am now deconstructing. The linear elements of their interior secrets are anatomical, structural and gestural...like a good drawing. I am going to let this construction hang pinned together for a few days while I consider whether to make it more permanent. I am considering a series of "hangings", rather like art quilts...but tacked together and pinned with as much frayed edge showing as humanly possible.
