Month: May 2018

felt with the heart

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

I came across this quote by Helen Keller one grey, rainy day at the end of last year. It was during a moment when I was really struggling to know which direction to take for my wool work, and even more struggling to find the courage to pursue it. That day, these words resonated deeply with me and helped me overcome some of the creative & personal obstacles that were blocking my path.

I wanted to begin the month of May by reminding myself of these words, because they sum up so much of how I feel about the creative work I am slowly endeavouring to pursue here. And also because I am hoping they will help me muster up the courage to take the plunge in a couple of short weeks time and finally share my work with the world, when I open the doors of my little shop.
