(((Grace))) I cropped the image so it was just the photograph dropped it into Google Images (which I use whenever I come across an image without provenance) it came up in an article about James Baldwin crediting the photographer so I googled James Baldwin by Dmitri Kasterine and his blog came up with that page! I am a bit of a pedant and always try to seek the provenance of any images shared when they aren't credited....

these are beautiful, love how the squares are relating to each other! I have a 33 year old wool blanket that is slowly disintegrating, as more holes are appearing have been thinking it would be a good base for a quilt that would take the rest of my life to make!

(((Grace))) I love coming here to your sharings of life on The Hill, am reading a writer that you first made me aware of last year. Stephen Harrod Buhner's "Earth Grief: the journey into and through ecological loss" is a book that I will read over and over again as it gives me hope & challenges my blind spots, helping me dance with the changes as does your deep awareness & careful observance of the life all around you in the soil, in the air, in the water... the way you live so lightly on our earth is helping me slow down and truly see what's happening down here! namaste

(((Deb))) thank you for sharing the On Being interview with Jane Hershfield, love the thought that metaphors are "like handles on the door of what we can know and what we can imagine" & the closing poem Let Them Not Say by Jane Hershfield Let them not say: we did not see it.
 We saw. Let them not say: we did not hear it. 
We heard. Let them not say: they did not taste it. 
We ate, we trembled. “Let them not say: it was not spoken, not written. 
We spoke, 
we witnessed with voices and hands. “Let them not say: they did nothing. 
We did not-enough. Let them say, as they must say something: A kerosene beauty.
 It burned. Let them say we warmed ourselves by it, 
read by its light, praised, 
and it burned.

(((Marti))) As a first generation Polish immigrant born in Brooklyn my father believed in the American dream. His mother was a tiny woman with a disabled husband, she had two sons. The birth of my Dad nearly killed her, the doctor said if she had another child it would so she had a backyard abortion in Brooklyn in the early 30's, she died. My mother is a Catholic, she had 5 children from 1955 to 1963, the doctors told her she could not risk having any more. The pill was invented and she took it even though the church forbade it. I never liked how the pill made me feel, I won't tell you how many abortions I had before I had my tubes tied at 32! So I have some deep history with this issue. When Margaret Atwood wrote The Handmaid's Tale back in the 80's it seemed too far fetched...
