The Tapestry of Life
A fellow fiber friend posted yesterday about her feeling of general anxiety and fear about the outcome for our country after this most pivotal election. The feeling that all the good that is inherent in this extraordinary beautiful population that we are a part of would be once again ripped off by the few that would seek to silence the voice of true freedom. I recognized that feeling of dread and it was with me all day yesterday, too.
And as I watched the coverage, I felt that fear rise. I tried to quell it by keeping busy. Cleaning. (What i do to relieve anxiety!) Then as the night wore on hope and confidence began to build. But yet I refused to celebrate until there was complete certainty that it was true. And now it IS TRUE! I am in awe! In the end, as I looked at the crowds of young people celebrating in the streets, looking for all the world like mullticolord strands of fiber blended into a beautiful skein of yarn, i thought of my sons, now 18, and 21 and children of friends who are slightly older, and i felt proud. Proud that there were enough of us in our generation to instill these values in next generation. This generation. There is still a little place, this morning for that fear that it will be taken away. That it is a dream that i will wake from. But I will push it down and live in a state of creative gratitude. Let us manifest our dream! Let us weave the fabled tapestry of life that we know we can. In peace, love and abundance to all!
