We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. – Albert Einstein
I am sorry this week’s Living Arts Weekly blog post is late. For some reason, even though I created the post early last week and took care to save it as always, the entire thing disappeared! Given the topic, I’m a little freaked out by that! Let’s hope it makes it to you this time around.
Happy New Year,
Mary O’Connell, Your Living Arts Weekly blog editor
Perhaps you have or have not heard the buzz about 5G technology and the potential impact on health. As with so many things now, typically people are split in their sensibilities about what to believe. Erring on the side of caution and care (and we might add cuteness), Emary Williams has given us permission to share her post on creating hats for her children (above) designed to block WiFi and 4G/5G cell radiation. Her mom sewed these up using the Twig and Tale pattern and upcycled woolens and added a layer of Swiss shield fabric.
“I feel crazy some days. Like, tin-foil-hat crazy; but I think the more I am aware of how these things that I can’t see make me FEEL. The more I find I need to take action. I can’t see the microbes in my gut, but I FEEL better when I regularly consume kombucha and sauerkraut. With these pixie hoods, I can’t help but think of the French version of little red riding hood, called “ Little Golden Hood”. Her hood was her protection from the wolf, imbued with magic by her grandmother. The wisdom of the past can help us if we listen.”
You can find Emary at Clover Blossom Farmstead if you have questions, or if you would like to order a hat for a little one in your life.
