Prayer Flags and true friends in the rain !

Yesterday, April 11th, I showed up in Market Square at 2PM to read messages and hang a set of hand woven prayer flags. And a few dear stalwart friends even showed up to support this project. The temperature was about 39 degrees, there was a steady rain and a slight breeze. It was cold!

We hung the two dozen prayer flags from the trees and lamp posts and read over 200 messages. And in spite pf the weather, several passers-by stopped to talk to us about the project.

My friend Jayne, a first grade teacher, shared her class paper weaving which we briefly displayed on this park bench.

May 11th, Monday, at noon, I plan to return to Market Square to read more messages, hopefully under blue skies. Please continue to send messages and join me to weave here in my York studio, all are welcome!

Namaste, Sarah

Oh my , I'll have to get up to NH for a visit when I head home just to see those beautiful flags.
I have to laugh at the umbrella's. Oregonians refuse to use umbrella's or so they say. ;-)

I often wonder if I am really nuts. When I say that I am going to show up to read messages, I do it. Only last winter when we had 14" of snow, did I skip it. Yes, it was cold, but my commitment to peace and art, and the support of others, kept me warm.
