compassion, patience, flexibility...

These are the qualities I believe we need to survive the future. These are the qualities I have been developing, some more successfully than others, all my life.

Through the web of blogs that connect us, I have come to know that there are lots of us doing the same thing!

If you are reading these words and you know what I'm saying, please join me in becoming the peace, being the calm . The world depends on our light. We make it stronger by weaving/knitting/sewing/crocheting/spinning/embroidering/beading - insert your form of expression here - our own little, individual parts of the web.

If we can all hold this web in our conscious minds at least part of the time as we work, we can shine brighter together.

Join me, please. You know who you are.

My thoughts on shawls:
When you are young and cute, a shawl looks quirky and cute on you.
When you are ... ahem ... mature, you are fighting that granny look.

Who cares when the shawl is this gorgeous?
