I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. - Frank Herbert
I stitched this Litany Against Fear around the fur collar of the dress. It comes from Frank Herbert's DUNE. For me it seems right to stitch this, appropriate given the state of our global climate, local and abroad, the economic and agricultural, the political and the personal. Fear is the source of so much, it is powerful, if faced it can create change, such a powerful change and understanding of our selves. So, to remind me of why Hawthorne is so important as a metaphor for growth and protection, I chose my this quote.
