Axis Mundi

I just spent a weekend retreat with Joey Weisenberg, who teaches nigunim (songs without words), sometimes singing the same one for up to an hour. Its kind of like meditating only more fun. Something he said really struck me. The Hebrew word sulam means both ladder and a musical scale. I came home and started this quilt. The ladder in my quilt is made from fabric that looks like sheet music. I think l’m going to call this quilt Axis Mundi, which is the connection between heaven and earth. My next step on it is to make some land at the bottom from two different purple fabrics.
