prayer for my friend

A couple of weeks ago a very dear friend of mine came back from Madagascar with severe malaria. He struggled for life for several days and his organs are now having trouble returning to full function. In the days when it was unclear whether he would even survive I sewed this little prayer flag for him. He is a very experienced traveller and loves Nepal and buddhism. This flag on my balcony now carries a prayer for his health each time the wind blows.

  1. I wish your friend a quick recovery. A prayer flag is a lovely idea, like lighting a votive candle.

    1. Thank you, Diana. Creating this little flag helped me when I felt completely helpless. Like you can actually "do" something while at the same time surrendering to the unknown meaning of all that is happening.
