A quote from a book of short stories I’m reading
“My mother works her rugs the old way.
She knows to keep her designs open so not to weave her Spirit in.”
From “Tight Places” by Ruth I. Kern
Women Writers of the Southwest - Walking the Twilight
I tried for an hour to write something wise and meaningful to compliment this quote.
Nothing seemed to fit
Then it came to me
It’s already complete
Adding to it would only weave the thought together too closely
And that would defeat the whole purpose wouldn’t it?
