"Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry." ...Richard Feynman, physicist.
We all accumulate memories as we travel through time. Sometimes they are loud and clear: a brightly colored hand-painted silk kimono my father brought home to his mother at the end of World War II. Sometimes they are whispered and soft, a glimpse caught only in the peripheral vision: a scissor-tailed flycatcher, a beautiful bird my mother and I saw on a road trip to the west coast. These bits and pieces are woven together to become the patterned fabric of our lives.
