Norman Kennedy, that enigmatic man

Black Friday brought me a video from Interweave: Norman Kennedy shows how to prepare and spin flax and cotton. Magic! His movements are so self-assured. You immediately understand he’s done this so many times that every movement is in his muscle memory, and that he’s long ago worked out the best way to do every working moment. He’s sparse, it looks like a well choreographed minimalistic performance.
