The focus of this month is Passover, the holiday when we celebrate our freedom from slavery in Egypt. My quilt depicts the splitting of the Reed Sea, through which the Jews were able to escape Pharaoh’s wrath. Although this passage is cause for much celebration, it will be a long forty years in the desert before they see the Promised Land.

In my own life, I feel as though I have passed through a great obstacle by making the decision to relocate and find a new career. I know that I am moving in the right direction, but I also know that this period of transition will be long and difficult.
