|Diane and Ginger hold the memoir quilt.|
Colorful patches we can all live by.
As Diane faces a great challenge this week at Cleveland Clinic, she took with her a journal from Pat, brimming with hand-written quotes above the blank page; a book of poetry, penned and published by Emma; a hand-knitted scarlet scarf with silver stars from Beth; and from me, an amethyst-colored stone from Mount Lemmon in Tucson. This is our "talking stone" that we hold when we read to each other. Diane will keep the stone until she returns to the Circle next month.
What would you take on your journey? I think I might like to take this feeling of intimacy. . . that like the threads and patches in Diane's quilt, we are all interwoven.
Safe travels, Diane.
