Beautiful Diversity

I usually stay away from politics and current events in this blog, but with the events in Charlottesville, I want to directly state my opposition to the whole idea of white supremacy.  I would no more want there to be only one kind of people, than I would want there to be only one kind of flower, horse, rock, tree, or planet.  And the same goes for the idea of having only one kind of people “in charge.”  It is beyond ridiculous, and I am so sad that we even have to think about this issue.

I made this GIF from the textiles I have around the house.  It would be better if I had more textiles from around the world to truly reflect the beauty of our diversity, but for now these will serve to express my feelings.

50 stars but infinite variations.
