My Best Work

Santa Fe Tarot ~ Ace of Wands/Rainbows

Sandpainting of a prayer stick, resting against the earth. The rainbows creating a safety net and shield around it. The start, the get 'er done, the most important part , nailing down the priority, the key.

I've been thinking about the Key the last week or so. In a world awash with anything and everything and everyone, my exercises in downsizing, minimalizing, limiting the chatter, eliminating news, helps clarify much. Including being an ascetic is overkill as much as 24/7 in the world.

But one prayer stick, laid on a world of shifting sand. I can do this, each day. Today it is finish the binding on a quilt, get it hung on the loft rail. Joyful applique baskets filled with stars and otherworldly flower shapes from when my eyes were good, my best work. Along with filler blocks that didn't make the grade but still ate up time and materials and effort. They are a large part of life too. And a way to emphasize the Key.

  2. Ascetics live in a black and white world; I prefer yours with colorful quilt cut-outs.😊

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
