Two days ago

I finished the weave bracelet.

I enjoyed the process and learned a lot while experimenting with textures.

I began this

with pure intentions… but I feel like this bracelet has tangled itself into a story, my inner story.

First, the plan was plain and simple; dusty peach, soft pink, and ivory.
Repeat. Peach, pink, and then ivory. But something happened. I got bored.
So I added a touch of green. I forced in some beads to catch some light.
I twisted pink and white, making peppermint swirls, I ripped and cut and
tattered some orange fabric and weaved in some of that, I stuffed in some
wood beads-
beginning to feel more like me now.

I always change my mind. I always go with the flow. I never stick to the plan.
I get bored,

and with a particular relationship in my life,
I always get confused with their deception and chaos.

I wish I could explain more but I can’t.
All I can say is I’m sure life started out as planned and then…
the story began to unfold, to tangle, to be.
