    What holds so strongly in Deb’s heart warming talisman is generational love; how it holds within families and because it does, it transmits to others, to our communities, to our planet…from the courage and great heart of our immigrants, comes tradition and steadfastness and Deb’s talisman is so right for I Dream of a World Where Love is the Answer. I am especially moved by the story behind the talisman as both of my parents too came to this country via Ellis Island, learning English after they had been here for a while.

    Deb~ What a wonderful story of a strong woman in your own family history. I am instantly reminded of the timeliness of your story as it connects directly to the present day. We are all the threads that hold love together. Thank you for your contribution to the well-being of our world. xo

      Hi Nancy! Yes, it was something that clicked when I was thinking about our current situation and I was thinking about the immigrants in my family. None of this is new and that adds to the heart break of it all…. Much love to you!

    Isn’t it amazing how a few bits of cloth and thread can hold a world of stories and love?

    there is something so poetic about the one knot — and it doesn’t surprise me that it comes from Deb — someone so keyed into the relationship between her threads and the natural world
