imagining Hope, again
The bad news floats between my friend and I.
I sit in her office, then she asks me to create a gift of hope. In the past I have done stained glass pieces to bring her hope for healing, but mosaic comes to mind as I take in the news of our mutual friend's health concerns. As the day goes on, a design comes to mind, and when this happens it is always a rough draft. I imagine a rectangular piece of slate. Hope fills the bottom left. Below it I swoop a base out of glass. At the top right is a swirl that flows across the top. I imagine Mosaic Woman filling that swirl with warm colors.
Then we make it happen.
