I know from experience that the wider my heart gets stretched the more deeply I feel every breath, witness the smallest details and am able to be present. This summer events in my life stretched my heart wider, deeper and taller than I thought possible. On August 18th my dear brother Weston, my traveling soul mate on our trans-Atlantic crossing, was tragically killed. Please go to my Woven Voices blog to learn and read more.
Along with the enormity of this event, I have been weaving hundreds of prayer flags and sending them out across the lands and waters to fly in homes, gardens, schools and churches. Thank you again to all my Kickstarter backers who have supported this project. We have woven over 600 prayer flags just this summer!
Wes would be among the first to say “Life goes on.” And on.
Another milestone is that “Each One: The Button Project, a 9/11 Memorial has been purchased and has a permanent home! On September 6th, the city councilors of Portsmouth NH voted to use gifted funds to purchase the art work in honor and recognition of Mayor Sirrell, Portsmouth mayor from 1997-2005.
This posting will be brief, because truthfully I am often at a loss for words.
As the healing and transformation continue, I trust that my words will return. Meanwhile I make art, weave and draw in an attempt to navigate this new landscape. My expanded heart is my north star.
