Sow Your Seed

  • My mom often said this to me while growing up: “learn a skill, be curious, and it will help you come alive in times of distress.” My mother was a perfect homemaker. Her sewing skill brought her alive when she became a widow at a very young age. Our life turned upside down due to the sudden demise of my father. Sewing came to her rescue. She started a sewing class and taught women in our neighborhood, and on weekends she took additional sewing projects to earn extra money. It gave her a momentary peace of mind. I admired her determination and perseverance in raising her three children as a single mom. Kudos to this strong-willed woman from the bottom of my heart!


    She tried teaching me to sow, but I failed and could not put my mind to it. However, I may have picked up the flair of her sewing style in my mandalas, which stands out in detail and intricacy.
