The wanderer

Peg among the Arctic…

So happy to post this pic of Dear Peggy Cohn,
The Queen of Adventure

who is on a grand tour of New Zealand.

She proudly sports her HN Artisan gear and it brings smiles to us here in the studio.

Go Peg !!!

Today marks the annual pulling up of the drawbridge…
which signals the beginning of the next chapter
in the “Oeuvre” of this artiste.

As the days lean into the lengthening shadows,and the winds whistle through the greying trees,
let the lights of the season
flicker in your souls.

Deep breath…

I’m heading for the easel….

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

As I read and hear the hate filled angry words
of so many here in this country who scream to slam shut our doors,
it makes me mournful and so so weary of the intolerance and ignorance.

Behind those volatile rantings is so much fear.

Something that they have in common with refugees.

Couldn’t that be a place to start.
