Ulrike Bogdan’s beautiful pennant is on it’s way from Germany!
she has written a deeply philosophical response to the dream of a world where love is the answer over on her blog  Nemo-Ignorat
after sitting with her piece of the wedding dress she wrote this response in an e-mail back in December;
“It took me a while to get an idea. But I got one I really feel good with. German is a rather unwieldy language but what is can do best is describe philosophical conditions. Love (Liebe) is more like a portmanteau than one concept. It consists of so many different emotions and connotations. Love alone is encompassing a whole range of being and feeling. What this world needs is Selbslosigkeit (altruism), Mitgefühl (compassion/kindness) and Geborgenheit (care/comfort) all these are living striving under the heading of love in general. Which is what I am doing in stitching.”
I riffed on her thoughts encompassing the word Love (Liebe in German) as a portmanteau envisioning a travelling medicine bag of dreams for mending our beautiful broken world & look forward to introducing her beautiful work to The Gathering!

    Speak the words of love, the universal language, and this pennant does so in such rich textural, color, threaded language. Ulrike’s beautiful pennant, so special in so many ways, not the least of which are the three pieces of the pennant, a trifecta of global conversation that defines what it is to share, care, understand, acknowledge and connect.

    Now that’s a proper swallow-tailed pennon … I so enjoyed reading Ulrike’s post and can’t wait to see her piece amongst the gathered.

      (((Liz))) I love how Ulrike’s pennant and words help me think more deeply about what this dream is all about and where it’s going!

    Ulrike’s piece speaks to the complexity of human love and underscores its global importance. I can hardly wait for it to join the chorus.

    Oh yes, Ulrike makes such lovely stuff !!!
    (and LOVE her words too 😉 !)

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Els))) Ulrike is such a multi talented & generous artist, scientist and philosopher, a few years ago she sent me a wonderful description of the chemistry involved in indigo dyeing that helped me understand the process.

    This whole thing is just so fantastic … with each pennant our world is coming closer together … Gathering … is a perfect word for what is happening … Wowza woohoo I just love this sooooo much.

    I like seeing the pennant at home here – as well at home with you – together, separated by hemispheres, yet such perfect togetherness…
