This new shower. What can I say? The water is now HOT and the patterns of the tile are totally transporting. I rub them in the morning. Run my hand over each one that I can read. Notice the texture. The coolness. And most of all, become immersed in their visual message. This one must be placed just so because it is where my eye finally lands. Always. And it speaks to me of universe beyond universe. The energy of creation.
And this morning, gazing here, it came to me to do this. To use black walnut. To dye AFTER the basket is complete. And then another idea. A variation. Because I sensed a need for the unexpected. A way to allow light into the center.
