Sandra Day O'Connor, former US Supreme Court Justice reminded us that our lives are not separate threads; they are inextricably woven within the fabric of many other lives. When I first saw the work of Marie-France Dubromel, it spoke directly to me. Her work, belying the worth of simple stitches, needles the elaborate winding cloths of our day to day life, the ones we use to bind that single fragile curl of breath upon which we hang, and recalls to us the preciousness of lives, simply lived. Aspire to beauty and technical expertise, but do not hold your breath as you do: create something your hands, eyes and imagination can easily accomplish. Begin today.
