Mindful broderi – embroidery

Mindfulness er et ord og begreb af nyere dato. Vi mediterer, dyrker yoga og sætter mindfulness på dagsordenen i vores hverdag.

Men er det ikke sådan, at betydningen af mindfulness altid har eksisteret? Jeg tror, at f.eks. broderi har været en legitim måde at trække sig for at fordybe sig i et håndværk og sine egne tanker. Eller måske netop ikke at tænke.

Her ser du broderi i ny form. Oprindelig var det en klokkestreng broderet for mange år siden. Den er klippet op og syet til en Vimpel. Du finder den i min bog Vimpler, der er udgivet på SAXO.com.

Mindfulness is a rather new word and concept. We meditate, exercise yoga and put mindfulness on the agenda in our daily life.

But isn’t it so, that the meaning of mindfulness always has existed? I believe, that for example embroidery has been a legitimate way to retreat and preoccupation in crafts and own thoughts. Or perhaps not to think.

Here you see embroidery in new shape. Originally a “thing” hanging in elder people houses. I don’t find the right word in English, sorry. But embroidered many years ago. It has been cut in parts and sewed into a Vimpel. (Flags). You find it in my book Vimpler, published at SAXO.com
