weird stew

cold liquid dyes: hollyhock, onion skin, rust; bloodroot; ecoprint, bloodroot 
i've got several things stewing away, none of them edible. anyone who knows me knows that's not surprising (i'm not particularly interested in cooking). but i am interested in the alchemy of making things. 
wood type, letterpress, and lokta shifu square.
been thinking of new books, shifu, healing, prayer flags. these kinds of musings sustain me, also challenge me to get myself moving to make something worthwhile. going back to school after a 12 day break means that i have to hold on to these thoughts. words from friends also sustain, my cadre of weirdos, thank you! some news a bit later in the week. prepping for magic spirit bag class #2 tomorrow.
