This morning a blanket of cloud left just a gap of clear sky above the earth. I found myself noticing how the proximity of the cloud seemed to create a tendency in me to form a connection across that gap - to draw the blanket down to touch the earth or to unify the two in some way, like in the principle of gestalt. Stitches are like that, too - each new stitch leads my eye across the gap, forming a connection and changing how I see.
I think that desire to close the gap or to connect the dots is how we learn and grow.

What a glorious photo, and that really feels like a blanket overhead! and your dotted lines certainly connect with me.

Thanks, Penny - it was an unusual sky covering and I'm glad to connect with you through stitch!

Arlee - another place of connection.
