Prayer Flag

 Today I decided to make myself a prayer flag for my tent at Shakori. I want my tent to be serene and peaceful and full of all the spirit that Shakori brings.
 It was a nice meditation, making this flag. All of the strips are from weaving projects and old clothing of ours, fabric given to me and much joy fills every strip of fabric. It might be nice if people want to add to it at Shakori with their own bits and pieces. I think I will make the offer and see what this becomes. It could be something quite special.
 Here is the bane of my existence right now.......what an eyesore on the side of our house where we have the only bit of sun we can get to plant some vegetables. Ugly monster!
I'm happy to be going back outside for shows this year. Looks like we may have some rain on Friday, but even the rain doesn't really dampen spirits at Shakori, and I expect rain, it comes every year, so I just suck it up and get in a mental place for it. The sun shines there too, so it will be a nice weekend, either way. Gerry is on vacation, Wesley is coming home and they are going to start filming a documentary together, so if I only sell one necklace, I don't really care. There will be music, dancing, family, friends and good food. sustenance of life. Busy week ahead, props to make and buy, car to pack, more necklaces to make, and pricing to be done. Looking forward to the weekend already and this one isn't even over yet!
peace ya'll

Wow Tracey. You have the opportunity to attend such amazing festivals!

Your prayer flag is simply beautiful. The meditation in creating it must have been very cathartic.
LOVE your heartfelt idea to invite others to add to it - I hope many stop by to chat, buy and spend a little time focusing their energies into such a beautiful notion for children and children at heart :)

It will be wonderful for you to be surrounded by so much good energy this weekend - wish you all the very best!

That's totally the right attitude to have. It sounds like a great place to be so you might as well enjoy it and let whatever happens happen.

The prayer flags look great, I bet you can tell stories about a lot of those fabrics.

Hy Lori, thanks, it's always all about the right attitude isn't it? Art is such a roller coaster ride of emotion......
