Crossing the Line

jm 3a blk s

My lines are
drawn, but I fail to
remember
convergence,
intersection, obliqueness.
Which side faces out?

I have stepped
between them, under
and over,
dropped, swallowed
and walked them. But where is the
point of no return?

    I don’t think there is a point of no return here—you just have to keep going!

    Pixie pick-up sticks. Scatter them, pick up, scatter them, pick up again.

    I think the lines are infinite (and they probably go right through portals).
    Your words and art are perfect together here!

    Lots to think about here, I guess all of those lines are like a dance step, forward, back, up, down and all around.

    Well said! And I look at those stitches and color changes and think what a challenge that must be to do!

    The art and writing fit together beautifully – both simple and complex at the same time. Very nice!

    Pondering and contemplating…what an intermingling of lines of prose and lines of fiber. BTW, you’re stitching is straighter than my drawn lines Kerfe. 🤔
