honoring needles

my broken, bent and burred pins and needles.
stored safely in an old film canister until full
and ready for disposal.

oh, i do like this way much better...

(the photos are so beautiful)
february 8th
in Wakamiya hachimansha Shrine.
(via the inspiring sonya philip)

the art of pulling a thread through fabric.
gracious, timeless, simple and sacred, 
if only we pay attention.


  1. what a wonderful way to pay respect... thank you for sharing!

  2. Oh, I just saw this somewhere recently, Karen. So reverent! Yes, a needle pulling thread is a beautiful thing!
