A Moment



Endings and Beginnings.  There’s a lot of that as the country mourns the Orlando dead and injured.  As the families mourn.  I finish hanging the art from deep in the garage as they identify the last of the dead.  I start working with colors for the bottom edge of the Crow Quilt, and discover that I can’t think color at all.  Families talk about their losses to the media, and I  mourn with them. 

We live in a time of escalating horror.  Trump jumps on the bandwagon.  I ignore him, and return to working on my Khaki centered quilt.  Granddaughter Sahara calls, and numbed I can only hope my voice shows true enthusiasm as she tells me of her world.  Such a beautiful voice.  I am greatly cheered.

Everywhere I turn there is horror.  I try hard to look among my photos for a peaceful image.  Something quiet to share with you….with me too.

  1. I think you did find that peaceful image. Sorry about the state of things and about the lack of political will to change.

  5. It's hard to fathom what would cause a person to kill and harm this many people. Our world is nothing like it used to be. Will it ever return to normalcy?

  6. I mourn with you. Yesterday we had our own tragedy; just one young woman MP but such a loss for us all.
