A couple of beloved friends are struggling right now. How helpless we feel when time and distance conspire against our desire to be present and helpful.
There is not much I can do from here at this moment, except send love. With that in mind I did this tangle last night, and dedicate it to all who are suffering right now.
I've been pondering this quote from an anonymous source (I've seen it attributed to several people):
"Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives."
...and also this one, from Georges Braque:
""Art is a wound turned into light."
May it be so.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
