Feathers in the cereal: from a comforter with love

Do you use a quilted parka to stay warm in the winter? 

99-year-old Klaus Obermeyer created the down ski parka from a goose down comforter his mother gave him for his move to America from Germany in 1947.

“I thought it would be nice to have something you could put on and ski in. So I cut up the down comforter that my mom made me take,” Obermeyer said. “For three weeks I had feathers in my cereal.”

What will you create today from the love you’ve been given?

“And what is it to work with love?

It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart,

even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.

Work is love made visible.” 

– Kahlil Gibran
