Weaving is like praying to me.





A French philosopher, Simone Weil says that
the greatest ability of human-beings is praying.
She also says that praying is to devote the attention
with outburst of soul to the god.

Dying from herba and weaving from thin threads
need great attentiveness.

@They are similar to a discipline absorbing
the inaudible sound and invisible objects.

I believe that I could touch something
if I could reach the end of praying.

I would pursue to feel my way of praying, or weaving.
