Happy New Year!
After two months of almost continuous rain, snow is here at last. And in 5 days, the sun should come back after the long polar night. As a special treat, I drove us to Steine.

I’m in love with my hand-woven fabrics. The more I weave, the less I feel like wearing anything else. My only problem is… my tailoring skills. I messed up two wonderful fabrics, it was a disaster and I’m now very reluctant to cut into these little treasures. But I’m working on it. I bought myself the cheapest fabric I could find so I could train without too much damage. I’ve always loved beautiful clothes, it’s like wearing the stuff of fairy tales…
I’m really glad I took to weaving. There are infinite possibilities and so many beautiful yarns out there.
The Shamaness is a shape-shifter, moving between worlds to reinvent Herself. She doesn’t just wait for the whims of circumstance to improve Her well-being, but evaluates everything, choosing the proper response, which is sometimes no response at all. She is wise, and knows intimately the territory on Her drum, for it is the world She dreamed for Herself. And it is in Her world, this magical, happy place, that She journeys with the rhythms of Her drum to take the best, most helpful decision.
