The earthquake in Japan was and still is very upsetting because I don't know how or where a friend is in that region.
The detainment of Ai Weiwei is also upsetting because he is a person I knew many years ago if only briefly. I feel very upset that someone I knew even a little bit is possibly being abused in a Chinese prison which is a horrifc experience for anyone who has gone through it.
Someone tonight showed me a website not related to weddings, with a reference to the use of veils as a metaphor. I also have a commission in process which fabrics ae used in the imagery. So, even after tomorrow's events textiles and fabrics are still going to be what my art is about.
Add a bit about friendship: missing friends and nice gestures that friends do is in the works in my art.
I have some free time coming up in the coming days and next week. I hope to be able to sit and get some of this done as it is on my mind.
