I was googling World of Threads to find dates and locations and I found this commentary on my work, MODERN SAMPLER.

“This piece is by Barbara Bryn Klare, called ‘Modern Sampler.’ BSP found it very amusing, I found it quite moving – both of us agreed it was a tale of a broken heart.”

I don’t know Kit or BSP, but I find it interesting that BSP was amused while Kit was moved. And that it was a tale of a broken heart. Maybe so. I *thought* it was a tale of love and redemption, but what do I know? Days and weeks waiting (lines crossed) –> Dating, deciding (not this one) –> Great love affection (Xs and Os).

Sometimes I just make the art.
