Call / Respond Week 1

You should withdraw inwardly and search for the ground upon which you stand: thereby you will find out what Truth is. —Yun-men Wen-yen

Standing Ground, textile art by Norma Fredrickson

About Call / Response: Quote-a-day calendars infuse my day with an unpredicted perspective. This year I will post weekly words of another person and my textile art. I want more time with the words and the image. I want to explore the interplay between words and image. Join the journey, which I have named Call / Response. I just might tell you which came first, words or image!

I found the words an a 2006 Quote a Day calendar. The art was made as a prototype for a commissioned wall hanging. The two were unexpectedly paired up and have lived together for a long time. The actual calendar page is pinned to the back of the art, which is in my own collection.
