prayer flags

one of the few positive political
actions i've taken this year (besides voting)
 i'm participating in a group project
 organized with 60 participants
 from across the country
 can you guess which ones are mine?
shu-ju wang is hosting this prayer flag project.
mine are picture number 3
indigo and rust dyes.

Oh Velma - I love this! How grand, I particularly love that artists are making things with messages of peace and triumph over hate and sharing them with the world - so good to see, so positive!!!

what a continuing folly all this is. (not the flags)

fiona and jude, you're both absolutely right. i'm glad i did this one small thing.

these words calling out from the heart of these ominous dark days mesh with reading "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamott from p104-
"... I used to think that paired opposites were a given, that love was the opposite of hate, right the opposite of wrong. But now I think we sometimes buy into these concepts because it is so much easier to embrace absolutes than to suffer reality. I don't think anything is the opposite of love. Reality is unforgivingly complex."

mo, it's often hard to remember and to let the complexities be.
