The Lure of the Scarf: roses

Photo Oct 31  1 27 27 PM

The design for this chiffon scarf started out as a sketchbook prompt for "roses" and was inspired by a bit of Mary Oliver poetry:

"Wild roses," I said to them one morning. "Do you have the answers? And if you do, would you tell me?"

The roses laughed softly. "Forgive us," they said. "But as you can see, we are just now entirely busy being roses."

[an excerpt from "ROSES" by Mary Oliver, Felicity]

Grace Scroll


The singer and poet Leonard Cohen said his first concern when he awoke in the morning was to "discover if I am in a state of grace." He defined grace as "the balance with which you ride the chaos around you."

The GRACE scroll. For prayerful meditation. For help in getting to that place of balance.

31 graces to help you get started. May the grace of PATIENCE be with me. May the grace of WONDER be with me. May the grace of BEAUTY be with me...
