A wind that’s cold. A puzzle that’s hard. Already the narcissus stretch toward the sun.
I am thinking of adding lines of red seed beads on the Dreaming of A World Where Love is the Answer cloth. To represent wounds. Unresolved history. The map becoming the body of the world.
(((Dee))) love the thought of touching each of the red beads as a form of prayer like a rosary, a meditation mala
That’s another idea. I was thinking more of beads of blood. Amazingly I don’t have any red seed beads in the house. An errand is required!
I love the phrase: “the map becoming the body of the world”
Thanks Dana. We are nothing and nowhere without this green earth. The whole history of man’s inhumanity to man is written on her.
First three lines read like a stand alone poem.
When you say so I see it. Hear it. Thanks for that.
Oh my … I love the red beads idea and what they represent.
Me too. Now to find the red beads.
I like the mapping
I like how organic it makes the stitching and how it implies finding one’s way.

Dee, I’ve taken to commenting about the pennants on Mo’s blog as she shares each of our offerings. In case you had not gone back to her latest post, I wanted you to read my comment re your pennant:
To see this gossamer cloth hold such power is amazing as well as profound.. Dee’s thoughts, words and her way of working the stitch into reality holds attention, holds intention, and most of all, holds a depth of rawness as well as sophistication that speaks so clearly to me of our world and our need to mend and reclaim it for ourselves, our children and for future generations.
Thank you Marti. I’ve been reading over at Mo’s to see the comments. I’ve decided to print them out and keep them handy for when I am in a slump — such kind words and powerful reflections! I like your mirror of ‘rawness’ and ‘sophistication’ — I can own that!
