words won’t come today

the loom speaks for me smooth and clear –

just lachrymation

    Sitting here similing with pleasure from all of this: the beautiful photo of the (your?)) loom; the new-to-me verbal cousin of lachrymose; the theme of our creativity and art giving us voice….and healing us. Sending much love to you, my faraway seer-friend

      I love this word – it is a beautiful name for melancholia, and for me puts tears in a lovely simple perspective : they simply are what is: nothing more, nothing less. Love to you. You seem a long way away in more than a physical way. We shall swap notes perhaps in the winter… 🙂
