Thoughts on Time and Productivity

I believe life is not merely a process; it has a goal. And production is the same....not merely a process. Nevertheless, I like this quote by Ed Franquemont. People often wonder how I have time to do handwork....and this is how....it is the ability to use bits and pieces of time....it is habit....

"Production, like life itself, is a process and not a goal to be achieved; the bursts of occasional but intense and directed energy associated with wheel spinning do not fit well into this process. Habitual handspindle spinning meshed into a daily routine is indeed slower by the hour, but faster by the week."

Or, slow and steady wins the race.

Found you through your comment on another blog. Your spinning is lovely. And dye experiments! Really liked the variations you got with the lac.
