  • for finding the money to pay me to teach classes for free to the public

  • for the encouragement
  • for walks where we hash out all the details 
  • for phone calls where I admit it is hard and I feel lost and lonely
  • for funny shows that help me laugh it off
  • for good music to help me shake it off
  • for podcasts to keep me company while I sew
  • for trading hats for delicious local organic vegetables
  • for a studio space subsidized by opening a door for musicians
  • for public schools allowing me so much time to do my work
  • for handling the details that make the farmer's market function
  • for creating a space that celebrates and validates recycling textiles
  • for these hands and heart and breath
