Under Construction

Annapurna 1983

As a blog is supposed to be written in the present tense, I get just one chance to explain how it begins.  Longer even than my dedication to tapestryweaving, has been my affinity for South Asia.  I first travelled there overland in 1972-73, through many places now more difficult.  The photo of me was taken in 1978 by my Nepali host on the front step of a farmhouse, on a hill overlooking Pokhara on one side, and the Annapurna range on the other.  I homed in on one of my photos of the mountains, for my first journey through a woven tapestry wallhanging a few years after.  It felt like I had climbed the mountain, stitch by stitch.  Years later when I revisited the same vantage point, all the details of the view clicked into place.
