The Ultimate Travel

While sitting outside, embroidering, longing to meander through nature, thoughts come to me. The one below is a surprisingly welcome one.

Wanting to be there

Being in

Marveling

Coming to an end

Desire to move on

Curiosity for another ‘there’

That is what a creative mind experiences. Whether it be painting, building, sewing or embroidering. This, I am sure, is why so many people embroider, however old fashioned it might sound. And this must be another reason why the nomadic folks practised this art of beautifying fabric.

Travelling, be it for pleasure or out of economical need, or the reason why nomadic tribes roam, is intense on the senses. Can be hard on the body. And surely afflicts the mind. Focussing on a little piece of fabric is stabilizing the mind. The piece of work is little, so easy to carry.

My need for embroidering came when I was unable to paint large oil canvasses. Earlier on I learned that drawing or aquarel turned out to be a hassle and unpractical.

Travelling needed an outlet and something easy to carry. Something quick to start and end. The possibility to fold the work carelessly. Pack it randomly. Simply said: it must be practical.

The most practical form of contemplating was born. It stabilizes the mind for one who travels. I feel a most creative traveller.
