The Artist in the Community
Silence had broken out; heads bowed, as if in prayer, the women fell into reflection. In the next room, in response to the repose, the clatter of cutlery being washed and dried softened. and the Burco preparing water for tea was turned down so that its soft hiss was hushed as its contents fell away from their rolling boil.
Thread was brought to lips by experienced hands and drawn through needles before being measured to a length that was satisfactory. It was all part of the process; the choosing of the material, the memories it held. Feeling not just the cloth but deeper still the recollection. Faded with time perhaps or still as vivid as the first wearing. But as the need for concentration waned and the hunger for creativity passed it out the conversation rose up again. The stories that are created as the needles dip in and out, creating seams, drawing together sides, and creating strong new connections.
