• It IS beautiful. After Joshua died, i kept making quilt blocks in my head. I didn’t have the energy to REALLY make them. I just laid in the hammock outside and watched the sun flicker through the leaves of our giant maple tree. And I’d imagine myself making heart blocks. In my mind I’d rip each heart, then sew them back together again. Sometimes I’d cut them in half. Or make them look shattered, in lots of pieces. The trick was to find a way to make them whole again. Eventually I’d notice the sun had gone down and I’d get up and go back inside the house. Maybe I should really make that quilt someday. That’s a beautiful photo.

  • No, it is not just you.

    IIt is beautiful and it speaks to the loss we all deal with at some point and the hard-won wisdom that is ours after that loss.

    A lovely find, Laura!

  • Oh, Laume! I don’t have any words to say how I feel when I think of you lying in your hammock, imagining quilt blocks to try to work through such grief.

  • It IS very beautiful…
    But a picture of Sébastien might be almost as beautiful…

  • Mimi, I have to credit the find to Corey of Tongue in Cheek. She is a wonderful finder of old treasures! But I found her site from Paris Breakfasts, which I found clicking from yours, so…you led the way! 🙂

    A picture of Sébastien…hmm…where have I heard that before?
