The Cloth of Relationship
by Bob Schwartz
Relationships are cloths, woven over time.
Few are solid, woven from one color thread. Beautiful, if that color and weave is right. For you.
Almost as few are planned patterns, perfect plaids and checks and stripes. Maybe plans once, but even a glance reveals misses, tiny or huge.
Most are crazy weaves, and then it all depends. How is it to your eye, to your touch? Something to wear every day, to delight, to keep on the loom and add to? Something else?
What happens when threads go missing, pulled out or worn out? Most cloth will hold together, and the new design may be even better. For you.
