Thought for a Sunday

I just returned from a cool weekend at the coast where I discovered a lovely poster - a charcoal of whales - posted at the entrance to Greenwood Beach. The theme of the poster was the fragility of the ocean's ecosystem. Underneath the image was written a small quote ascribed to Chief Seattle of the Suquamish. It struck a certain note with me as a weaver, so I scribbled it down to share:

"Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
