Something essential happens in the vegetable garden.
It's a place where if you can't say "I love you" out loud,
you can say it in seeds.
And the land will reciprocate, in beans.
~Robin Wall Kimmerer :: Braiding Sweetgrass
There is beauty to be found in the most unassuming moment...
just after dinner is eaten + before the dishes need to be done,
waiting in the pick-up line,
walking the dog,
bedtime with a child,
just before the knob is turned,
just after the knob is turned,
before eyes are opened onto a whole new day,
in a familiar hug,
a familiar number on caller ID,
just outside the door,
just by looking up,
just by slowing down.
Beauty. It's waiting.
Paths are made by walking.
We are makers of alternative routes.
The craft of use [how we use our clothing] is a stance
+ avenue of action for a different future.
