drying dyeing

 there was a little potful of mushrooms and water waiting for me to throw in something to dye
i was uninspired 
and exhausted
this week. 
all i could do was make paper, something i know so well 
and so  
i took a piece of lokta, 
folded it, 
clamped four quarters, 
and put it and two velvet scrunchies into the pot
the color and pattern are very subtle
but at least it's something
and i am looking for subtleties 
these days
grateful for every
