Sharon said, "The journey with the
flags was incredible... I chose to use my
“knitting” motif as a symbol of the unity of all things. The writing began with the word “YES”. And then we wrote all the things we were
saying yes to. It became a conversation
with the flags…"

We are revisiting the first set of flags. Here we come to the last addition to the group, with the piece by Sharon Kagan and Karen Michaels from November 2006. As you may remember, the idea for this project grew out of a creativity workshop with Sharon. Among inked lines of knitting are these words of inspiration: Yes, integration, peace, sanctuary, vitality, quiet, faith, death, rebirth, glow, and more.
Here is a bit of history if you are just joining
us. This set of twelve prayer flags began in July 2005. Each
participant chose a personal theme for their flag. It is the initial set
created for the Bhavana Project, which is an ongoing community art work
intending to share wishes and aspirations with the wider world. New
participants are always welcome!
