We are staying hopeful at Sustainable Threads in this uncertain time, although the day-to-day has been a challenge. However, we are carving out work that may be useful down the road… We hope very much that you, your families and colleagues are staying safe and keeping healthy.
We recently came across this poem, "And the people stayed home" that resonated with us deeply and we think you will enjoy reading it, and feel empowered to take small actions that may provide hope. The picture here is from a walk around our neighborhood park, capturing first signs of spring!

"And the People Stayed Home"And people stayed homeand read books and listenedand rested and exercisedand made art and playedand learned new ways of beingand stoppedand listened deepersomeone meditatedsomeone prayedsomeone dancedsomeone met their shadowand people began to think differentlyand people healedand in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,dangerous, meaningless and heartless,even the earth began to healand when the danger endedand people found each othergrieved for the dead peopleand they made new choicesand dreamed of new visionsand created new ways of lifeand healed the earth completelyjust as they were healed themselves.Kitty O’Meara
