Threads of the Tapestry

The Artdog Image of Interest 

Our “strength in diversity” month is coming to a close–and what a strange, challenging month it has been. The temptation is always before us, to retreat back into our own short-focused tribes, build up the barricades, and glare out from behind them with suspicion.

But as Maya Angelou and Nate Williams remind us in today’s image, there’s another, better way to look at the world. As long as we fail to see and value the tapestry, we’ll keep unraveling.
