If any human wae truly in touch with the heart and mind of God, whatever his or her name, there would be no sects, no religions, no politiccal parties, and no strife. Original Sin is the knowledge of the separateness from God, rather than at-oneness with him or her. But instead of seeking to return to that original state of mindfullness or grace, we have become angry at ourselves and each other and seek to punish rather than save or care fore each other. Compassion is the origional commandment of God, and we have forgotten that, and we seek to tell each other how to live rather than just living with each other. There is no true religion, no true political belief, no true way to live, only compassion and understanding. We are one species, not several, and if we and our beloved mother earth are to survive, we must all stop, seek the silence within ourselves, and reach out to our neighbors in hope and extend the branch of peacc. We must forget ourselves and our personal pride and remember compassion..

Artmidter raises gay questions in her blog post today. Art entered into quietly shows is jusdged As quilts one would presume, and one would wonder about as point ystrfem anyway. I entered an art quilt into a small lofal show and received an honorable mention, one judge really liked its, and two were lukewarm WIth tgh pointgw. Its was the only Artists quilt entered into the show an was classified among small applique quilts. How does one judge art? Who is to pronounce ArT judgments which are to be takin as valid? What is the artists to think when confronted with a points systens? Does that mean that we should carefully construct our quilts according to that system so we could receive higher scores? Should we even enter our work into such venues? We all crave feedback and critique, but are judge's comments genuine critique? Is the artist testament to be taken seriiously, or should the art stand on it's own, and can it really do so in such venues? Is surface design art? Is Art Cloth valid as "art" or is it all wishful thinking? Matissese would ceertainly classify tfextiles as art, but I'm not sure about Picasso, and do other opinions even count? I cannot even pretend to have the answers. I would agree with American fiber artist Katherine Westphal who said, "Art is whatever we (artiets) say it is."
