Words to Consider

  • I bind myself today to the Holy Powers: Their hands to guide me, Their wisdom to teach me, Their ears to hear me, Their words to give me speech, my heart always to love Them. —Galina Krasskova
  • "Not to hurt our humble brethren in fur, feather or fin, is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: to be of service to them whenever they require it.” ~Francis of Assisi
  • Tikkun Olam (roughly translated, I understand, as Heal the World)
    “It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it.” –Rabbi Tarfon.
  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

So sorry you've been sick, and also about your mom-in-law. Hope you are on the mend now!

Judy Merrill-Smith

Winter, with its various illnesses, sometimes forces us to rest, doesn't it? I hope you are mending quickly, and your mother-in-law, too.

Jo-Anne

Glad you're back, Anita. Sorry to hear about the accident, and your illness. Fabio's still around??!! Take care of yourself.

Sorry to hear about all the problems you have been having. Hope things are looking up now. Love the colourful hats and your doll is looking cute.

Wow. I have never before known someone who read Fabio. Was it life-altering?
I love the doll.

Hi, my friend! I've really missed you! I knew something was going on but had a feeling you needed to be kind of 'reclusive' till you were ready to be otherwise. I'm sorry about your MIL! That, I believe, is a fear everyone has as we age - the slipping away of our independence due to health issues. My heart goes out to her! I'm just glad YOU are recovering & making wonderful things again. LOVE the hats & I saw John's sweater in the next post - working backwards here - will comment on that post. Emma & hot pink - a GOOD match! And that doll is WONDERFUL! Your swap partner will love it! Keep getting better! And no more Fabio! LOL! If you need books, TELL me - you KNOW I have a stack a mile high ready for your viewing.

Love the hats. And the looking is looking great.
