Caress this thread, O breath of life.
Let me meditate stitch by stitch,
in and out
up and down
seeing always with the inner eye.
Give me freedom to unbuild when necessary.
Give me courage to deconstruct that which no longer works.
May I be aware, with a grateful heart,
that some things are held together for only a short time.
May the warp and weft reflect the movements of an integrated heart.
Let me understand the patterns and the foundations,
ready to explore the permutations and adapatations in my work.
Guide these fingers, O weaver of dreams, to express the joy of knowing you.
May all your endeavours be blessed today.
