Deep Thoughts

In this political environment of greed,  I am increasingly sad and angry that we humans don't learn from our history, or to connect compassionately with our needy, our poor, our abused children, our ailing elderly.  And our leaders keep playing games to keep their power and positions by taking power from the people they are supposed to guide and protect.  We are not falling through cracks anymore...people are plummeting into the abyss.    We need leaders who are enlighted and believe in truth that we are ALL equal and have equal rights...and that to whom much is given, much is expected.  

Problems cannot be solved
by the level of awareness
that created them.


Oh, What Lovely Yarn We Weave

I'm still trudging along with my crone piece...It's certainly been practice in patience.  I keep running into unexpected problems with my fabric, in my job, doing taxes, and working in shorter periods to try and prevent a carpal tunnel flare-up.  I'm therefore going to put up a couple of yarn pieces which I hand wove, then used embroidery thread and beads over and throughout them.

Deep Thoughts

Can anyone imagine
Moses, Jesus, or Gandhi
armed with the moneybags
of Carnegie?

This piece is called "Thangka: Family Blessing" and was a gift to my son and his family for Christmas.  The image of Buddha is a transfer, the piece is hand embroidered and beaded, and it is 10 1/4" wide and 30 1/4" long.
