Time Expands

I'm up at nights thinking of how slow I've been at getting Widowsweave  into galleries and spaces.  Is it life or disorganization, timidity or timing?  I've had a couple of apps and grants not quite get accepted, but there is a haze on the whole project which I have to clear away.  I have to buckle down and find the time and space to make real progress, only without depleting our resources.  Until I receive a grant or find employment, I have to stay on the cheap.  There is still much I can do.
