Theater Seats | Wenatchee,WA | February 2019
Velvet’s plushness results from using the same thread to weave two facing layers of fabric. When sliced apart, the fibers form a peach-fuzz surface that’s valued for its softness and durability. A year into retirement, I continue to shed my outer layer — the career veneer — to reveal deeper strata I’d long forgotten. Silence, stillness, patience, acceptance. It’s a weave that still needs tailoring, but I can tell this suit is going to fit just right.
