thanks very much for sending along Ruth's message. Is she sending her
material on palimpsets and quilting just to you? Any way she could add me
to her list? I working with the quilting metaphor, among others, to try to
talk about "weaving writing."
I read a wonderful comment on the wall at a show of Middle Eastern carpets
here recently that might interest her: "What appears to an outsider as a
disjunctive passage in a village carpet may be the record of a 'visit' by a
sister, a cousin, or a friend of the principal weaver."
To avoid cluttering the list, Ruth can reach me at [log in to unmask] if
she's interested in a conversation. I certainly am interested in her work.
