The circle of it all is amazing & full of wonder. I was just sitting here looking at your words next to my words & thinking how peace in Self is where to begin today. ox

How we put the pieces together (or don't) is how we make our story.

The room was full of books, part of the escape. Sometimes I'd crawl into the back of the closet with a book for a deeper get away.

It's an old one, I remember it fondly, but I'm guessing that there are dated ideas in it, probably a good one for the library.

All week the sketchbook was filled with doodles of caves. Just the openings. Their insides remaining a mystery. Growing up my parents would refer to my bedroom as one, calling out, "She's going to hide in her cave!" as I stomped up the seventeen stairs. It was a place where... Continue reading

It seems everyone around me knows about The Moth, but before this book, I hadn't heard of it either. Being able to say "I'm afraid" out loud seems like one of the strongest things a soul could do. You are so good at Knowing.

What fun, visiting the laboratory of your life, Deb! Science is curiosity in action. Just last week the class was experimenting with batteries. It was great watching the kids come up with their own explorations and discoveries. I was excited to learn a few things, too! (i.e. it is not a AA battery, but rather a AA cell, two or more cells put together make a battery) I'll be interested to hear how your dandelion fabric turns out.

Thanks, Nancy, I always meant to finish it in some way, but there it hangs, four years later.

Yes, so much goodness, it is overwhelming, in the best of ways. This cloth/community piece of my life comforts, balances and carries me through some of the rest of it.

In 2013 I started at the center of that cloth and circled around, stitching a word a day, whatever word came to me in the few quiet moments of the morning. There's everything from "peace" to "waffle" on there.

I'm thinking that sharing, in all its forms, may be a key to peace.

Pieces of peace arrived the other day . . . from Liz. With a generous thoughtful spirit, she is stitching these little pins full of heart and sending them out to many. I was touched and grateful to receive three of these small jewels. Liz's tiny stitches are a marvel.... Continue reading

Yes, that The Moth, which I had never heard of before this book. I've lived in wool socks this winter, & am quite attached, it may be August before I let go of them!

These have been volatile days, on all sides of the spectrum.
Thank goodness.
