I was reminded of my time in Lesotho and the women who created beautiful tapestries. The weave of threads touching, overlapping. At times their proximity was intentional, while others accidental yet the final product remained one of beauty and color.
I considered relationships, connections- those intentional such as relatives, friendships that add color and value. Or the unintentional “accidental” found in the shopkeeper or the person who bends down to pick up the bag you just dropped. Both of these encounters impact us and cause a blending of fibers which will alter the design or color of our canvas.
These are connections.
Everyday, millions of fibers from others brush against the fiber of our being with potential to add, or subtract. Which means we too have this potential of influence towards others leaving us a choice….what color of fiber will we choose, one that adds color and joy, or will we allow our personal challenges to smudge the color from others.
I choose yellow, I choose joy… the happiest color I know,
How about you?
