A bobbin's worth of guidance

All of us lose our thread from time to time. This bobbin of fine quality embroidery thread is designed to help you stay true to yourself, feeling your core amid the circus of other people's expectations and demands. As the thread unravels, the following poem appears.

There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt or die;
and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.

- William Stafford (1914-1993)

Part of Tools for Changemakers, a range of products made with Sophie Howarth, founder of Department Store for the Mind
