Shown above: "Motherland" My mixed media paper quilt
in homage to our 44th US President, Barack Hussein Obama
Embarking on a profound holiday season for many personal reasons... Got this e-mail today from The International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artist (IAPMA) one of the organizations I belong to, and thought it was worth sharing....
we must leave ourselves open to change,
and allow ourselves some wiggle room,
a certain tolerance.
the denominations must also be at the ready
to accommodate, to adapt, to be flexible
if they want to remain a symbol of hope.
we must maintain a certain receptiveness
to those things in life which come along and
derail the plans we thought we had.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
