The Sprinter

The main focus of “The Sprinter” was supposed to be speed. But while quilting, the quilt “took over”, making me feel that there was so much more involved in this topic. I’m not a sprinter, I’m a runner. I run for different reasons – out of habit, to sort my thoughts, to elaborate on ideas, to tackle problems, to calm down, to experience physical exhaustion. I leave a lot of things behind, find a new perspective on things, can determine goals more clearly. To me running is freedom, allows me to break free from the stress and restrictions of everyday life!
