prayer flags

Several prayer flags... and more to share in the upcoming workshop on techniques.  For these two I used tea bags to make leaf rubbings, then appliqued the paper to the hand dyed cotton flag.  Breathe, inhale and exhale are all reminders to stay present.

The third flag addition is a leaf rubbing directly on the fabric with oil sticks, paint added later... and writing (Stay, Inhale, Exhale, Stay) about staying with the breath in the present.   Where I am living at the moment, and relishing it.

I don't think anyone 'finds joy'.  Rather, we cultivate it by searching for the preciousness 
of small things, the ordinary miracles that strengthen our hearts 
so we can keep them open to what is most difficult.
