None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Dreaming of Peacocks!

“Creativity is seeing something that doesn't exist already.
You need to find out how you can bring it into being and that way be a playmate with God.”
Michele Shea

Recently I spent two weeks in Japan visiting my daughter who teaches English in their public school system.

While there, we were invited to spend the day with the family of one of her friend enjoying barbecue and celebrating Obon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors.


The giving of gifts are a part of Japanese culture and since I knew about the event of ahead of time, I made sure I had gifts for the family.

Three of them I made for the ladies who have made my daughter welcome and part of their family.

Unfortunately, the yarn wrappers were tossed and when I tried to find them in the store, the colors were not available so I can't pass on the supplier information.
