hidden truth

mary jane dodd


'when we discover that the truth is already in us,
we are all at once our original selves.'
~ dogen

your truth can become lost...

buried beneath hurt, distraction... 

unspoken, unheard... 

yet it remains - for it is who you are... 

become quiet, find what excites you... 

it will once more become known... 

and when this happens -never again let it slip through your fingers

like so many grains of sand... 

honor it fully, defend it fiercely... 

live it truly...

This is a beautiful bracelet tied to a beautiful expression. It's easy to stray from the path, others through brush and leaves on us, we lose sight of our way ... but congratulations to you! You've found it! and we are the benefactors!

Maire,
You know when words are put together just right when they give you a chill and bring you a tear or two. Lovely bracelet.

Look back next year, and see how much farther you have come. How much more your have discovered. Grasp each new part of yourself that reveals itself and remember where it hid. Don't lock that place, for there is so much more to free.
xx, Carol

I love the way you express yourself, Miss Mary Jane. Whether in words or in your wearable art. It is just so full.
Enjoy the day!
