Spinning with others
Many years ago our family was traveling in the American South West. I had my drop spindle with me and sat in an ancient Native American ruin and began to spin. I felt like I was communicating with others who had spun in that place and wondered what they might have been thinking. So when I traveled to Machu Picchu in Peru last week, I once again decided to commune with the past. The roots of my craft are here and it is certainly thought provoking for me to relate to past generations in this way. I spin because I love the process, they spun out of necessity, but I still feel a connection to them.
