After Weaving Peace
I've been back home for almost a week. For the first few days, I draped the panels over fences.
But most of all I have been looking, contemplating, and remembering all the wonderful moments captured in bands of color.
When I first began Weaving Peace, I thought I would be weaving the word PEACE in three languages: ENGLISH; SALISH; and TIBETAN. Soon after I began, an old friend currently living in China stopped by and presented me with PEACE in MANDARIN. Then a cross country bicycler from Thailand gave PEACE in Thai. Who could have guessed that PEACE in SWEDISH, DANISH, and NORWEGIAN are the same? At least that is what the group of Swedish tourists told me.
Other languages followed: ITALIAN, PORTUGUESE, GAELIC, HINDI, QUECHUA, RUSSIAN, HAWAIIAN, JAPANESE, and HEBREW. And then the month was over....
