In this episode I am talking about what slowness means to me in my practice right now and how I’ve learned to still appreciate the process when chronic illness and disabilities slow me down. I’m taking a longer view on things, thinking about how slowness makes space for observations and stories to be woven into my work and how stitching and carving supports my wellbeing in so many ways. I’m also asking questions about devotion, the value of time and the beauty of simplicity and simple aesthetics.
I hope that if you’ve ever felt too slow you’ll find comfort in listening!
