Creative Expression

Quilting and tango have two things in common--artistic expression. Quilting is a form of singular artistic expression. As I was working on the shoes, I found that same sense of inner stillness I find during a great dance of tango. The two forms are very different. One relies completely on yourself, and one relies on another, but the end result is the same. Athletes describe it as the "zone", but this is such an inadequate term for the joy I get from creating.
