Hearing the Stories....

Based on my last post I should be blogging about this exciting day's figure eight loops- my family's movement through life's cycles- little eights.  The school changes are special (Clare is learning about the intermediate school (4th grade) and sally "graduates" from preschool this morning.  And I'm really looking forward to toasting a dear friend at a great place with good people around as she turns 40 at dinner tonight. 

But the things I have to share is the stories I heard yesterday, the opportunity to be enveloped- is that the right word- yes- I was comforted like a beautiful fabric- in the stories of these quilts- these amazing pieces of art.  You won't want to miss the opportunity to take in this art work at THE Works-details below, opening tonight- but try hard to meet and know the artist (Mary Helen Fernadez Stuart) or her family and friends- have them tell you what they know about the pieces!

Our community is a beautiful place and this art's show demonstrates that point in lovely ways.....
