“Listening to what others say without giving their words power over us allows us to become aware of our own truth. It enables us to see what is real for us and what is just an illusion—a lie fueled by personal importance.

Stitching sachets to give friends and family is a gift to myself. The hand-painted gift tags are lagniappe. I had to check my left brain-ego who is very critical of my craftsmanship. Don’t let it spoil the fun of my right brain finding expression in the practical art of scrappy quilting.
You can fault the execution. I’m a beginner in this. Skill comes in time. But the taste is there and my heart is in the right place.
My heart-felt best wishes for all the wonder and joy of the season. Happy Solstice. Happy holidays. Happy Kwanza. Happy day. Happy. Happy. Happy.
May I learn from my sorrows. May my heart open in greater love and forgiveness. May I find peace, joy and happiness in my present life. May I let go of fear and come to see the gifts of wisdom and compassion that can be found in all suffering. And although I cannot change others, may those who hold to fear and anger eventually find these gifts as well. The separation we see in the world is but an illusion, a global dream we are dreaming together. May all our hearts and minds eventually awaken.
Let it Be.
