Sometimes you've just gotta ...

... say "wow, thank you" to kindred spirits like Gillan
(from Hearts for Charleston) ...



... marvel at dye magicians like Deb Lacativa 
(for Cassini threads and cloth) ...


... and shout ...


"What do we want?
Health care!
When do we want it?
Now!"

loud enough to make it onto the local news 

Although, as often happens, they only got the story half right. I was certainly in front of Senator Cruz's office to demonstrate for a "no" vote on Graham-Cassidy (which Cruz might do ... for all the wrong reasons). But keep my health care the way it is? No thank you at $25k per year, plus $12k deductible!

"ACA ... mend it, don't end it!"

And sometimes you've just gotta stitch how trees might be ... 


as in this study for The Land as the Crow Flies ...


made possible by wild peace floss.

love seeing the big hearted gifts from Gillan, you on the news & especially your trees stitched so beauitfully with Deb's wild peace threads!

Go Liz!! You're right, the ACA needs some help for people who are not quite to Medicare. Mike and I struggled mightily between his retirement and his sixty-fifth birthday. Keep on Senator Cruz's case, on any number of issues. Your hearts and your trees are so touching. Go Liz!

I can never grasp fully the US Medical system - but it needs to be fairer all round it seems to me (and I shall leave commenting on other countries' systems right there) so yay you for shouting out. And yes to the sharing of good things around the globe - the generous hearts of many.
