Today's flag is for our Stories. We all have them, we all tell them, but do we all listen to each other? I recently read a fascinating novel, The Postmistress, by Sarah Blake. It was a good read, and I won't go into the plot, but one theme running through out the book was the need for us all to pay attention - real attention- to what happens around us. To listen. To act. To care. I pray that we listen to each other, hear the needs of our fellow man, and act accordingly.
The flag is composed of three pieces of antique fabrics sewn together. The words "Listen to my Story" are embroidered under the yo-yos. The tag reads will you listen to me and was snipped from the pages of a novel.
Thank you all for listening to my stories and for the tremendous response to this series of prayer flags.
This is the last post for my June Prayer Flag Project - thirty flags have been made, thirty prayers have been sent on the wind, and thirty posts to this blog have helped me along on this spiritual and artistic journey. I am going to continue the series - maybe for another month, maybe for the year, but I will post the pieces in groups, maybe once a week, maybe more.
For more flags in this project, now including over 50 artists from around the world, please see my new blog dedicated to The Prayer Flag Project.
