Frida's T-shirt inspired this one:
Peace the Flower,
Justice the Seed.
I sewed Muslin onto the other side. I am really liking these seed pods I found.
In the spirit of Lenore Tawney's postcards, I am not considering them complete until I mail them. I want to see the stamp and the postmark on them. I also want to see they survive the voyage. Will every glued seed make it? Will the card make it across the ocean to Paris, France?
I even send them to myself by dropping them stamped into another mailbox and seeing if they make it to mine.
I made two of this one, one for me and one for Myrthe. I am sending her my copy of Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit and thought I'd attempt sending her a postcard with a quote.
Hope is a door, or a vision of a door, a belief in a way forward that is not open to all people at all times.
In an example of how we are interconnected, it was actually Rebecca Solnit's brother who helped think up the Hope and Overcoming Barriers creations that I experienced at CSTI!
The other side is a personal revelation that I had:
I have come to realize that I work in cycles, fluctuating from the right side of the brain to the left. When I become passionless in the one, I switch to the other with a depressive respite in the middle.
And now I am going to enjoy a rainy day on the couch reading and writing with Maya curled up alongside me.
