Chaos in life and tapestry

Have you ever searched for an image of chaos? Most were mythical creatures, perhaps from video games. The ones above are the only ones that made any sense to me. And, as I look at them, I kind of like the one on the right. Hmmm…what does that say about me?

So, why am I searching for images of chaos? Because that’s my life right now. I’ve mentioned before that I am designing a new life for myself, and it’s definitely a work in progress. The hardest part seems to be in finding new routines. For the first time ever, there are no routines that come from outside sources, unless you want to count night and day.

I am a great list maker and can plan a project with a multitude of steps, but implementation is a problem. So, I have taken a big step—called a professional organizer. The hope is that someone else will see the first string to start pulling. She will come out weekly until we finish the areas in most desperate need of help. One of the most helpful things she said to me was that most people who work from home have some of these same issues about routine. I am not alone!

imageNow for some GOOD chaos–Janet Austin has written about her series of tapestries called Chaos. In this blog post, she writes about all of them and includes pictures of each. I would really like to see them in person. If you’re close by, you can see the one above at the East Greenwich Free Library until January 6. You can see all her tapestry photos grouped together here. Fascinating—I love seeing how people work! There is also a Kilim tapestry series, which I don’t remember seeing before.
