More sorrow, more loss, more life. If we listen closely, we will hear the words of change whispering back. Why resist? Living in fear is no way to live. Mercifully, I have grown tired of the struggle and my work is beginning to reflect this. If it seems morose, why not? Is this not a feature of living fully? Have you ever walked through an ancient graveyard and read the wisdom of the stones? I like the simplicity of earlier times. I have been asked to contribute a piece to a grassroots group – ‘Friends Helping Friends’. These are people who have been touched by the despair of others – those who are sick and poor and needy.
No, I am not making a quilt that will cause anyone to weep. I am making my Bucket List quilt – the one that has been circling in my head for months and months. I will downsize, of course, as time is a factor. I will not spare the sentiments that I believe are so essential.
A quiet quilt with a strong message: LIVE. THIS. LIFE.
