This is one of my favorite pictures. Have you ever had a professional picture taken? It is quite a process. Unfortunately shortly after I had this picture taken I gained 100 lbs, my hair turned gray and I started wearing glasses. It is wonderful to look back though, and January is the perfect month to look both forward and back at the same time. All of the cloth in the picture are of Color Horoscope Weaving woven in 20/2 cotton (even my jacket). My looms at the time were a 45" 4 harness Herald and a 40" 8 harness Gilmore.
When I see this picture, I think of the word MASTERY. I had mastered normal body weight after months of dieting which I was able to maintain for exactly 24 hours.
