It's Wednesday morning and everyone seems to be bustling about with preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday. Many of you know that my family and many of my friends live in Israel. These are troubled times for them. It's hard to be faraway, the worry keeps me up at night. As with many other times of crisis, I find solace in my work. Sitting with my canvas and threads makes me believe that things will come back to order, safety and peace, as has happened many times before. My Shields series was born during such a crisis. I felt I needed to stitch these Shields in order to protect my loved ones.
As the Thanksgiving holiday comes around I do find myself thinking about the things I am thankful for, as corny as that may sound. I am writing to tell you how grateful and thankful I am for all of you. With your support you help me believe I have accomplished something, I have contributed something, I have brought beauty. Accomplishment, contribution, beauty, wow, these words are so powerful. I am so thankful for this, and you are the source.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday. May you find enjoyment in being with family, friends, or in just being with yourself. May our love of beauty and the pleasure we get from the work of our hands sustain us and keep us content.
