various fibers, hemp and linen paper
we are connected to others
through a tapestry of place and time.
before us are the ancestors - of all living things
and earth forms.
beside us are family, friends, the global community
and all that grows and exists.
after us is the future we help to (hope to) honor, create and preserve.

loose ends are not things left unaccounted for -
at least, they don't have to be.
give them purpose.
like hands reaching out
or a rope thrown to a drowning person,
they are available and willing
to any being who needs them.
creating ties where none existed before.
