it brings happiness

words and spinning. an interview from Adam Dyess...

"It is not important how hard you are working, but what are you getting done?"

"For me the hardest part is to stop the spinning!"...."some days, fourteen hours..."
..."and I have to stop, but I like to spin more!"....

"If you have a good wheel, a good spinning technique, and a good fiber. Then it is just joy...nothing less, nothing more...just joy. And at the same time you are having joy, you are producing thread"... "...and you are producing joy and yarn."

That pretty much says it all!
