My days follow a simple routine so somehow I manage to make progress on complex work, if only at a snail's pace.
This piece has me reflecting on aging, retirement, and how life wears thin and develops holes and tears here and there. And on the increased effort required to maintain good health.
And how life transforms into something different, something that has its own beauty. My process and my thoughts intermingle as I stitch.
