once upon a time there was a hunter

the beginning of a new illustrated storycloth

I am experimenting with indigo
and I keep reminding myself, just to give me courage, of the trials of learning how to make bread from books
It took me about a year to get the hang of it, and quite a few bricks were produced in the meantime
so maybe the lesson I learnt then was patience and to keep going
fermentation is so much like a blessing, when you finally get it
and it always seems to be a little outside of you
you can't really control it, just try to provide the right environment
like parenting, or art
and lots of prayers to the weather gods
oh yes and preparation

the corner you see there is Helen Melvin's the colours of sea and sky, a great companion on this path. thanks, Helen
