Needle, thread, and the year ahead -- A brief preamble to the overdue do's of '07
The art of embroidery and quilt-making in Southern Africa has a history of reflecting social change. Artists portray current issues through their art, in this case expressing how people and communities cope with HIV/AIDS. Messages of awareness, choice, prevention, and solidarity appear on these tapestries. Such messages are timely this time of year, I think.
As 2007 draws near, I have been thinking about what I should resolve to do and not do. The three do's stitched above will almost certainly make my list.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. More on the new year soon...
