Gentle people and a Still, Quiet Voice

Prayer Shawl

Two lovely people allowed this  one artist free reign with their precious family shawl, and this is the result.  It went off happily to its new home today.  (We miss it already)  Some things just are special, and that’s what this felt like.  The wool is weighty and draped beautifully, and there was so much interest in the beautiful details, but beyond those physical aspects, this shawl had presence.  I was drawn to the soft reflections and filtered glow of the light through the folds, and to me it was like the shawl was breathing.  That’s when I realised… so often we can’t hear the voice that really matters until we stop. Still. And listen.
