A Thousand Fibers Connect Us




We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”      ― Herman Melville


      This is such a beautiful thought.  As a fiber artist I work with fibers and attempt to get them to connect in a way that will tell the story I want to convey. When I need a break while working, I put the glass on top of the painting and set it where I can see it while I do other things around my cabin. I can see what “relationship” I need to work on to create the effect I am wanting to portray. Each of our actions create causes and effects in our connections. Some beautiful and some we do not understand.
