Weaving Destinations

The first dot on the map may be the most interesting!

Bonnie Tarses will be weaving in western Montana, at Flathead Reservation, in a bucolic spot called “The Garden of 1000 Buddhas.”  Through the internet I found this description from a Montana newspaper:

“Visualize a 10-acre garden with a thousand Buddhas to inspire visitors of all faiths to reflect on peace and find compassion and happiness within themselves.”

And now visualize Big Sky country, a peaceful garden for contemplation, and your loom at your side!  Does it get any better than this? The Dalai Lama plans to visit the completed garden in 2011.

I haven't yet talked about this on my blog, but I will be weaving the Dalai Lama's horoscope to donate as a fund raiser to help with the completion of the garden.

Actually, I was planning to invite weavers everywhere to weave something during those days. Look for details in the upcoming days. Here is a great little movie about the garden
