The Latin word for text, texere, means to weave. However, conveying the world, truly palpable with a pair of weaving-hands, is beyond the grasp of words. Weaving speaks from the whole to the whole, whereas words cannot rid themselves of politics seeded in every verbal perspective. On the other hand, without words the unitive wisdom of weaving will remain hidden, dark, and mute.

I rely on peripheral aspects of writing such as syntax, formatting of text on a page, and hyphenated words – as well as different types of writing including poetry, distilled-text, and prose – to create a multi-sensory experience. The tactile elements of writing, when combined with different genres, bring a synthesis that bypasses linear thinking and enters the open space of a process. into enlightened understanding.

Read My Blog
Each of my weavings is inspired rather than planned. Ideas go through an imagining and designing phase—not unlike falling in love. This emotion opens my imagination to new ideas. I quickly capture them in my journal where they evolve into themes for tapestries. Setting up the loom and weaving is the marriage between imagination and manifestation.


Listen to Suzanne's Perspective.

Silent Oratory: A Weaver Speaks

There is no designated language for expressing the experience of living in the web of life. This book is a companion to the tapestry series called by the same name. The textiles communicate vital aspects of the unseen world which resemble the whole-oriented principles of weaving. Thus, I experience the unseen with the process of weaving. I combine poetry, distilled-texts, artistic expression, and an essay to stimulate a textural intellectual understanding. I make the point: a process-based perspective is missing in a world that mainly relies on the written medium but is also increasingly being controlled by dominant discourses that use words. A process-based perspective could show the way to an alternative to a world divided by words whose medium compares, contrasts, and separates.

The Weaver’s Journal

The Weaver’s Journal fills the need for a way to imagine weaving one’s tapestry of life. Our lives are considered tapestries but rarely discussed is how to weave them. The Weaver’s Journal was inspired by the Life-Weaving tapestry series of 12 woven diaries. With this idea in mind I created the Journal. It is a special book where you strategize which life-saving pattern you will use to address a stress—related to an ever-changing world. Finding the right pattern—in time, is how to prevent a tear in your tapestry of life. This life-weaving process is fully explained in the introduction. There is a calendar with no dates, simply blank pages for journaling. You can begin life-weaving any month of the year. The twelve months of the year are announced by an image of one of the 12 free-form constructions from the Life-Weaving tapestry series.


Forthcoming book: The Unwritten Book and Your LifeBook Journal: An Organic Personal Conscious Evolution

The Unwritten Book and Your LifeBook Journal: An Organic Personal Conscious Evolution is a work in progress—in its 20th year of writing. I expect to finish it early 2019. The challenges with writing it mirror the unusual difficulty in applying the organic personal conscious evolution which I advocate in the book. According to evolutionary theorists, such as Ervin Laszlo—our planetary system has entered a seminal period of chaos. We stand poised on the sill of a chaos-window, which he understands in a human-context as a “decision-window.” It has been scientifically verified human activities are the force pushing the sixth mass extinction—rapidly. If unintegrated lifestyles are the problem, ones that are integrated could be a solution. The book discovers out-of-the-ordinary universal self-experiences—ie, we all sense we have a universal truth, a wisdom, and connection with everyone and each living thing—hidden in the subtext to the main personal history we identify with. Readers cultivate their own experiences—meme-free, with organic conscious evolutionary gardening, weaving, and conceiving-gestating-birthing—integrated universal self-expressions. Shifting from a separated identity and global reality to a world—unveiled as holographic fractals of the whole, is supremely challenging.
