These words were written by author Arundhati Roy. They are the concluding paragraphs of her article published in Financial Times in April, 2020, called "The Pandemic is a Portal".
Her words so clearly sum up my dreams and hopes for this difficult time we are traversing.
I have to follow them with the little quilt I made early in the summer and posted a short while back, expressing my hopes for a new way of living being created from the old. You can see the new ways and ideas just beginning to pop out from within and behind the old ways.
World Turned Upside Down

You can visit a previous post to read about the technicalities of how I created this two-layer quilt, and other stories about the concept that grew as I went along in making it.
This season, I am most grateful for all the individuals and organizations that are coming up with creative solutions and pathways to not only imagine, but also build, a new lifestyle of respect and understanding for our planet and all the living beings who call her Home.
