Here is a review of the book:
ByAnita W.on July 29, 2017
Readers who have enjoyed Susan Mayfield’s luscious illustrations for children’s books will not be disappointed by this beautiful collection of her artwork and writing. The extraordinary variety of color and texture in the artwork makes this book feel like a good mystery novel (I felt compelled to keep turning the pages to see what surprises were in store for me!), while the meditative writing also makes it a perfect choice to keep on my bedside table to begin or end the day. Some of the haikus calmed me, while others sharpened my perceptions with their startlingly original observations about ordinary things. Many of the haikus have a message of quiet encouragement to those who are seeking courage to embrace change, take a new path, or see something in a new light. While I want to share this book with all my friends, it will be an especially good gift for someone facing a transition or entering a new phase of life.

The 9 July 2017 FASA Spirited, Passionate, Uninhibited, Thoughtful, Nurturing, Innovative, Kind (SPUTNIK) meeting adjourned at 2 pm, with a lot of new-to-SPUTNIK, spirited and passionate artists in attendance. Everyone was excited about their artistic creations, eager to share with the group, and very eager to try indigo dying.
Journal prompt for this month is “design a logo for your name.” It can be literal, abstract, whatever. Have fun with it! If you want to catch up, the prompts have been mandala; origami/folding/textile manipulation; self-portrait; home; map/travel.
Most important Call for Entry (besides the FASA Annual Show)!!! Start your Storylines now!
We will have the FASA members’ installation of Storylines again this year in conjunction with the FASA Annual Show.
Please let Carmen know you want to submit a Storyline by emailing her email@example.com with “Storyline Submission” in the subject line and state your name, contact info, and how many you plan to submit by 1 Oct. It’s okay to notify her early (now!) if you want.
Your Storyline needs to be 4-6 inches wide, 6-8 feet long, and have a pocket (or some other method) that will allow us to slide a small dowel through and hang the Storyline from hooks on the ends of the dowel.
Deliver your storylines on 8 Oct to SPUTNIK; 9 Oct to FASA; or help us install your piece directly in the Incarnate Word Semmes Hall on 10 Oct, in the morning.
This is a non-juried installation all about supporting your creative efforts. No threat! No stress! Just have fun, create, and show us what you made!
We had a great show last year, let’s do it again!

Jean discussed the history and basics of indigo dyeing and then released the hordes to the indigo pot. Jean started by skimming the crust off the indigo and setting it aside. Then we all started dipping. It was great fun and there were lots of ooohhhs and aaahhhs as the indigo changed from green to blue on the fabrics. An awesome presentation!
These will be about 10-15 minutes unless otherwise noted. Volunteers to present your passion are welcome.
