The Loom of Fate was a piece that I created to illustrate the similarities that our lives have with a tapestry. Our hearts and minds are the physical manifestation of our soul parts, and it is the events of our lives and the passage of time that is the loom.
Through personal exploration and introspection I have discovered that regret is a monster that gnaws at the very root of one’s being. To indulge this beast, is to invite the inability to enjoy the passing moments of this beautiful world.
When we look at the Loom of Fate piece, we see our tapestry in its entirety. When we do this we can see where we came from, who we were and where we are now. In life, if we are to know where we are going we must know where we have been so that we can influence where it is that we are heading.
Knowing our past isn’t enough to move beyond regret; to develop a healthier spirit, and to watch our soul strengthen we must embrace every part of our tapestry. If it were not for the bad, we would never have perspective to appreciate the good. It is through all the moments of our life that our tapestry is woven, for without one fiber, no others may exist.
