mjd - 2014 - fragile strength talisman pouch - moonflower

it is no mere coincidence that the moonflower blossoms at night. 

it requires darkness 
and the silvery light of the moon
for the creamy white bloom to open.

reverse - fiddlehead

there are things that grow in the dark night of the soul
that, quite simply,
would never come to exist in any other way.

these gifts are meant to come to you in times of struggle or sorrow.

don't miss them because you are looking for the light at the end of the tunnel -
be in the tunnel -
and be aware that surely they are present there along with you.

mjd 2014 - no act is too small

one small stitch at a time

makes for work that is intentional and time consuming 

in the best possible way. 

mjd 2014 - no act is too small

as makers we are gifted with the ability 

(with much practice and attention)

to speak our hearts and minds

through our willing hands.

mjd 2014 - no act is too small

how fortunate is that?
------

consider the strength of one stitch.
then consider the strength of many.

how much power resides
in each act of kindness,
each act of bravery (no matter how large or small),
each thought of gratitude,
each expression of love and compassion?

mjd 2014 - no act is too small

while one alone holds it's own integrity,
the accumulation over a lifetime can be staggering.

mjd 2014 - no act is too small

no act of kindness or generosity is insignificant.
