Title-“Mom’s Prayer To Me”
Dream Theme – Health/Peace
Materials & Techniques Used: Fabric Pieceing & Quilting; Cotton, Mohair,
Permanent Ink, and Buttons.
★The Story-“How does one find peace? How does one find peace after loss?
How does one trust medicine, morals/values, a higher power, emotions and
life – death? Is it through trust? Is it through memory? Or is it because
you have known, or know, love. Perhaps, love between a mother and daughter?
For me, love is the shelter and protector of dreams. My Dream Rocket piece
reflects more questions then answers, but it is through these undefined
statements that I feel my dream for global peace, inner peace and an over
arching peaceful dream for beauty in life can best be expressed.
Can science love?
Do most religions truly love?
Can you trust human beings?
What is your memory of a serious illness? Should humans have to suffer?
Is struggle and pain inevitable?
Do you value human life?
Should a life be put into someones hands? Whose hands?
★My dream is to trust a healthy and peaceful world. My dream is that universally
all humans can feel connected – physically/spiritually. My dream for all is
health and not to take that for granted. Unfortunately, all to often, you lose
someone or something. In reality, until it happens to you, you don’t learn or
understand the lessons.
★My Mom’s prayer to me — you will dream and believe. You will love. You have
already learned my valuable lessons and will continue to face more challenges
ahead. You have a beautify life. I trust you already know that and it will
bring you peace.”

★What else could the IFC do?
“I say keep going – getting universal, so to speak, involvement for this project
is a tall number to out do. However, perservence is the key. Something to calm the
Get heads of states involved (peace keeping; apprreciation for the arts; all human
involvement with boundries, boarders & political agendas) or maybe a political
agenda would be good?”
