Posted by Peg in South Carolina

I am opening this with a link to an article on creativity. I found the article from a blog called 43 Folders. To read the post, "Attention and Ambiguity: The Non-Paradox of Creative Work," go here. I am grateful to the blogger for the link to the essay he is discussing. That essay is well worth reading.

Oh PEG!!! Just when I thought it was safe to catch up on blogs (I've been over the top non-loom busy!), naturally, I come here first and look at this list!!!

OY! They all look like great reads, and of course I'm going to have to read them. Weak-willed that way, I am. :-)

Now, off to catch up on what you have been up to.

I know you love what you are doing right now, Jane, but I will be very happy when you get back to weaving.......
