endings and beginnings

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.
