When being constantly surrounded by amazingly skilled crafters you often find yourself in interesting discussions. The other day when we had Shimogawa-san over for dinner we talked about the RUNNERS HIGH and the phenomena to be 100 % focused and to be able to use all your senses into one thing. We all agreed that there is also a WEAVERS HIGH and as a crafter you aim to come to that point of concentration and complete flow.
As a weaver I would describe it as being one with the loom, we both work together and feel each others rhythm and uses it to give the material best possible conditions for weaving the fabric we want. Sometimes me and the loom have different opinions and then we have to make peace before we can start working, sometimes it feels like a battle in who has the strongest mind.
