January 1, 2012
Welcome to 2012, here in the Sonoran Summerlands it is almost looking like Spring. We had a wonderful sunny day with temperatures in the low 80s. I spent the afternoon wandering the Desert Botanical Garden and took photos. I do hope the perfect day is a sign of things to come. Last year was such a fantastic adventure. Possibility was my word of the year for 2011 and I explored many new things and places. The end of the year brought layers of releasing to make room for new experiences for the coming year and I am so excited about the potential of this year. My word for 2012 is transform, it embraces the alchemy I want to capture in the coming year. Spending a month in Oregon last year has really re-ignited my love for my desert. It has inspired a project to capture the vivid and amazing color of the desert in cloth. I love India Flint's work and I would like to explore the native plants of the Sonoran Desert and how they can be used to color cloth. My other big plan is to plant a dye garden in my backyard.
I plan to explain more about the project over the next week as I make my plan.
