I started work on putting together thirteen weeklies from early in the year to create a wall hanging. I do like the way this is coming together! The finish size will be close to 40 inches wide and 45 inches long. It will look lovely on the chocolate brown wall in my bedroom. I'll get it all sewn together this weekend but will then have some hours of handwork covering some raw edges on the back and adding some beads or other embellishments. The little mock up I made (here) has been very helpful in getting this piece to come together. So exciting... I feel like the time spent working with the journal is paying off.
Hendricks begins the reading today introducing Epictetus - "we are our prohairesis" - and then jumps to a practice that, in part, requests that in honor of him, ask yourself: What do I know that could help people change their lives two thousand years from now?
I'll get right on that. Okay, if I take a breath and answer with some seriousness, I'd probably focus on something like -- BE a citizen of the world.
(you know, just a little more inclusive moral, economic, political relationships between individuals, States, Countries... 2000 years maybe I should say - BE a citizen of the Universe.)
