When you go through a hard period,
When everything seems to oppose you,
… When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute,
Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!

The cure for pain is in the pain.
In Silence, there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.

The truth was a mirror in the hands of God. It fell, and broke into pieces. Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it and thought they had the truth.

—  Rumi

Pineapples were ultra rare in early 1700s France. 

So rare that the artist who designed these tapestries probably never saw one first hand. The first pineapple grown in France was given to the King of France himself (Louis XIV).

Wonder how that tasted…

Zoom in and explore this pineapple harvest here.

I want someone to weave a stormy landscape tapestry so I can fold myself up in its cloudy torrent.
