Graces of time enclosed in paper. Slowness expresses as pauses, inhalations, invitations to think.

How to begin a pilgrimage with so many paths? In Jacqueline’s playfulness of routes and directions, there is no excess even when she offers me so many ways through. Her work is uncluttered and I am grateful for slender strength; it feels as if skin has been lifted from my shoulder blades and I can freely stretch and think into the ink extensions.
