that you quote Wendy here today....Signal ~ Sign....thank youJudy, so much
you are so welcome! x
your red thread on the white hankies resonates so deeply with a memory from Quebec in 1969 of following a trail of blood in the snow the day my Uncle Johnny's mad brave collie provoked the service station guard dog once too often! (he survived)
Yes, blood on snow, blood on sheets, red and white. These two colours symbolize death in my research, which shook me until I remembered that death is part of the circle of life and blood is the river.
Stunning and moving; red and white,my mother would never put these colour flowers together as superstition (hers?) Meant an accident, blood. This feels like the beginning of a journey through to resolution and moving on through to another journey
thank you for your personal story re: red and white together and what they mean. The hankies are gifts from other women to me - Most of them from my elderly friend, Connie, but also some others. My idea is to make cloths from these gifts that link generations and cultures together through that larger idea - the ideas of suffering and warning, of death not as a final thing but as a renewal - ...those are ideas that have been gifted to me through the process of making. x
I hope that we can have a conversation about creation. Thank you for taking interest. x
