Holding Truth: prayer flag #10 as antidote to alternative facts

3 Feb

As far as I know the Bowling Green Massacre theory is an alternative fact.  Not a truth.

This butterfly–slow stiched during a gentler time spent online with Jude Hill–is meant as a reminder of the value and beauty of truth.  It’s a pocket–a safety net–to hold written words or ideas that clarify one’s world view.   And it’s a reminder that butterflies aren’t alone in their struggle to avoid extinction.


This morning’s prayer flag.  Stitched with cloth pieces from older incomplete projects. Patched together for unity.  A truth holder.

    I love Jude’s artistry, too. We must be on the same wavelength, Patricia. I needed an anchor for my flags and decided this morning that it would be holding. With all of its connotations, it feels right. This was BEFORE I read your post. Laura

      Gentle–Cynthia’s word–and a very good one at that. Thank you my friend

    The delicate, yet transformative butterfly is a wonderful truth holder…maybe showing us that even as things shift and change we can still look for, hold on to truth and beauty in many forms. Love this one Patricia.
