Blessing The Space Between

yahrzeit

In the memory of my father whose yahrzeit falls on Tu B’Av:

May the presence and the power of the spirit
surround, support, and guide us and keep us safe.
May we remember the deep love we have for each other.
May we greet out emerging differences with tenderness and tolerance.
May we call upon our courage to speak our truth,
and reveal back to others without blaming or shaming.
May we hear the truth others speak with compassion.
May we have the patience with their progress and emergence.
May we pause, breathe, and let ourselves settle.
May we stand in love and strength together.
May our rough edges be doorways to healing.
John O’Donohue

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
