Quilting Across America! Tour 2017-2019
Quilting Across America Tour: it is the juice that fuels my Random Acts of Artwork Movement! THANK YOU!
After the last two and a half years of the honestly devastating losses of my family in the 2014 Oso Mudslide, my divorce, then my foolish horse accident that left me without two of my senses (there really is a joke in there, it's okay! It cracks me up too!), I have had a lot of time to think and feel and get perspective on life. This has led me to the knowledge that my energy is contributing to building the world I live in. The status quo world that we are fed by culture and media is, quite frankly, completely insane to me. Reality is that we are all a part of a larger whole. We are like cells in the body of Earth, everyone a vital part of the whole. Being the most sentient of cells, it's rather up to us to be good stewards of that which we are entrusted. It's clear that the vast majority of us are not thinking that way. There are a lot of good reasons to excuse ourselves from actually being the change we want to see in the world. It's uncomfortable to put yourself "out there." People might not like you. You might starve! Blah blah blah. The one thing that I know about life is that is does not matter what your opinion or actions are you can find someone to say you are wrong and disagree with you. That knowledge has inspired me to do it anyway.
During my Summer 2016 road trip in my 1993 2- door Geo Metro, I jumped in a big way and purchased a 2004 Alfa 40', diesel pusher, motorhome. I did a lot of research because my intention was to find one that I could fit a longarm quilting machine into. Introducing: The Art Bus! I now live full-time on the road, living a life of sharing, community and beauty. In the deepest part of my heart I know that Making Things Matters and the more we make the more we connect with who we really are, which is really good for us AND the world.
Thank you for your generous donation! Every single dollar, parking place and gift is a beautiful blessing accepted with deep humility and gratitude, enabling me to continue to share my gifts in service to Truth, Beauty, Humor and Love. 100% fan supported with no corporate sponsors.
