2. It seems to me that the tapestry community has developed a sense of statis during this past month. Perhaps it is a lull right before fall with its reminder that the year is about to end, with its flurry of activity to harvest, with its pressure to finish up before time runs out. The summer heat has emptied everyone of thought and motivation while things ripen.
3. I keep telling myself that I am blind to what is going on under the surface of the fiber community. Something is changing... maybe "something" is made up of my changing perceptions and expectations. I can't put my finger on it. I feel different about tapestry and about the fiber world. Why? What has changed? What is going on?
