a path with heart

“A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.”― Carlos Castaneda

I've asked myself this question for what seems an eternity, 'What is my path?'  My walks on the beach, through a park or climbing a mountain gives me good footing for my mind and sometimes the path reveals itself to you, a path with heart, the only kind to take...Aloha Friday!

Driftwood + Seaweed Slouch

Ever drifting, drifting, driftingOn the shifting Currents of the restless main; Till in sheltered coves, and reaches Of sandy beaches, All have found repose again.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from the poem 'Seaweed'

This bag.... A labor of love, countless hours upon hours stitching & dreaming of the foggy gray coastline, walking in meditation, heaps of scarred driftwood that have seen the world, good stories kept in silence, tangled up in seaweed, it's most trusty drifting companion, draped beautifully giving itself to dryness of the land. All these thoughts and images of my day dreaming mind and methodical hands incarnated into the lovely Driftwood + Seaweed Slouch.
