Weaving Thoughts Together

Share your thoughts, to weave the fabric of this blog.
It is vivid with color, alive with chatter, and protective of all.

Who is Grace Buchanan?

My earliest and favorite memory of my mother is from when I was beginning nursery school. I sat on her lap while she read rebus books with me.

Rebus Story
A page from a book with rebus pictures for young children to “read”.

I jumped with enthusiasm as I dramatically read each picture. I continued to read out loud in my bedroom to my toys, mimicking the extravagant performances of entertainers whom I especially enjoyed when I went to many shows in and around New York City. As I grew older, I read to all the kids I knew, including my own. Now I love expressing that energy when I’m performing audiobooks for you in my sound booth.

  1. Lovely idea. Handwoven is great, mind-woven is, though invisible, longer lasting and has great reach…
    The peripheries are the new centre! If one weaves, one starts at the edges and makes ones way to the other side 🙂
    Peace

    1. I often have a love-hate relationship with the part of me that weaves in tangible ways. Art is frivolous, no? On the other hand, art expresses and feeds souls.

      I like the weaving metaphors you are playing with.

      Peace to you, too, my dear.

      1. Art frivolous? No, never. It’s how we express the unspoken nuances of the human soul. It is a vital aspect of our humanness, and sometimes the only way to express truth, see truth, experience truth. If scientists are the minds of a society, then the artists are the soul. No? 🙂

  2. Entwining posts with threads of thought and spinning our collective yarns creates material that looms so loosely based and tightly wound, we’d have to knit our brows together just to untangle the beginning of the meaning between the spaces within the words and the gaps and silences which permeate the lines of language, which is exactly where my mind prefers to dwell until the chapters of our lives are saturated together.

      I write in my head daily, and look forward to when my internal seasons change so I can share them here again.

      Thank you for the advanced notice. I’ll see what I can do.
