Saadeka Eternal by Cookie Washington (detail)

Saadeka Eternal

2007

"I belong to no race nor time.

I am the eternal feminine with its string of beads." ~ Zora Neale Hurston

This quote and this quilt speaks to the life of the Mother Spirit.

We are life, before life,

LIFE

and life after life...

This piece is dedicated to my sister friend,

Miriam Saadeka Joyner-Chandler

Some people have goodness in their hearts,

Sister Saadeka is goodness made manifest.

And now she is forever eternal.
