I was reminded of many things when I saw Alicia's challenge. This words was the first thing that came up. My favorite words. “ This also goes over” Last December My son got married. A pretty daughter - in - law has become my family. The day my daughter - in - law first slept in my house, I remembered many of those days when I was married. Many strange and awkward things...... Now, strangeness and hardship have turned into comfort, but the years have not been easy. When it was
Over the last few years I've had a couple of really exciting travel opportunities along with our Viewpoints 9 exhibitions - 2 that immediately come to mind are the European Patchwork Meeting in France and TIQE in Taiwan. Like other things in my life, they appeared on my calendar as spots on some distant horizon that seemed like the would never come, but they did, and a new horizon stretches on.

Alicia's challenge word TIME is a tough one! Go ahead and read the wikipedia page . By the third paragraph your head will be spinning.

With civilization encroaching via towns, vi

"Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future".(Wikipedia). My word for this cycle is Time. We experience it at every moment. It can be interpreted in so many ways. Moving and progressing in space and time as one works and plays every day. Curved spacetime as conceived by Einstein and Minkowski. The seasons illustrate the passage of time. History develops in
