Today was grim after yesterday's optimism. I broke my Facebook fast because I needed to see and share what my tribe was thinking and feeling. The same things I am: grief, disbelief, and a strong desire to fight for our values and beliefs and do better for all our citizens.
Mid afternoon, my phone alerted me to a message. With this photo
It's my cousin Robin. He jokingly requested "homespun houndstooth" in response to a weaving photo I posted a few weeks ago. I offered this too warm for California but perfect for Illinois scarf I wove in my beginning weaving class last December. I love everything about this scarf--even more now that I know it will be worn and loved.
If I do nothing else for the next four years, I will keep making things and sending them out into the world to warm the people I love.
