WEAVING IN THE GARDEN


I know that I have posted this image before, but since the original photo was taken of me dancing in a field just outside of Arlee, Montana in 1970 (I can't believe it is 40 years ago!), it is extremely relevant to "Weaving in the Garden"

When I got my first digital camera, 8 years ago, I practiced learning how to take pictures of framed artwork. When I shot this, I didn't realize my reflection would appear on the glass of the frame.

To me this image speaks of time, ideas, and the eternal.

When Roberta told me about the Garden of 1000 Buddhas, I knew immediately that I would weave the Dalai Lama's horoscope as my contribution to raise money for the completion of this amazing project.

So when I announced: A JEWISH WEAVING PRIESTESS IS GOING TO THE GARDEN OF 1000 BUDDHAS IN THE HEART OF THE FLATHEAD RESERVATION IN MONTANA TO WEAVE THE DALAI LAMA'S HOROSCOPE FROM THE NEW MOON TO THE BEGINNING OF RAMADAN it set in motion many unforeseen events.

Details to follow.......
