All my scattering moments are taken up with my needle.
~Ellen Birdseye Wheaton, 1851
Lately, I have become obsessed with quilts and quilting
I am not sure if it is a need for order
where so little exists elsewhere in the world
Or that my heart is drawn to the potential of each scrap of fabric
becoming a thing of beauty
Perhaps I am hoping that I can take what I learn at
in to the world
and piece by piece
Help to stitch up a life here
and a life there
until at least a few
of those who thought they were just a scrap
and that's poetiquejustis
And there was a man who had been ill for a long time.
Jesus saw him lying there and said
"Do you wish to become whole?"
John 5: 5-6
