This morning, I found an old notebook with some notes that I had taken from Convergence, I think it was 2000 or 2002. From a workshop on "weaving as a profession", I found, "Crisis is the norm". I do many shows and have been experiencing this for the past ten years. I work hard at trying to figure out how not to live my life from a place of crisis (with varying success), but when I pulled out that quote this morning, I started wondering if this is just the nature of the business. From other professional weavers...what is your experience with rhythm and crisis in your business?
