Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Meditation Valley 33"h x 26"w
As a way to be calm and come to acceptance on my journey through grief, I have begun a morning meditation practice. I have learned that of course my mind wanders in many directions during that time. So I use my breath as a centering focus to bring me back to the present. The colored segments of this quilt are like the myriad thoughts jostling for my attention. The black and white segments in this quilt are a metaphor for that breathing. Like any practice, some days are better than others.
