About Old Age and Loneliness

Since I just had a birthday and it's the end of a year of huge changes, I was struck by the wisdom of this passage I came across in the book I was reading:
"You'd think the way people go on that if they stand too close to old age and loneliness they'll catch it themselves. I suppose that's true in a way, because you do catch it, if you stay around long enough. But you don't get it from other people; you don't get it from anybody but yourself." (Quoting Bernie McGill in The Butterfly Cabinet)

My flying geese quilt that I named "Migration" is finished and I'm ready to put 2011 behind me. No resolutions, but definite plans to NOT catch that old age and loneliness bug. I like my friend Virginia Butler's list of resolutions she is NOT making, like cutting back on coffee and chocolate, taking life too seriously, going shopping more, keeping a spotless house, reading more.
Sounds like a good year to me!

JavaWerks Display December 2011

My fiber art is on display at JavaWerks Coffee Shop in Hattiesburg for the month of December. When Pam Hill invited me to hang my works, she said, "it looks so cozy with your quilts there."
The coffee house is a popular hangout for Southern Miss students, and you can see lots of serious study going on there, as well as all age groups enjoying delicious coffees and teas.
