Common thread

Thoughts for a Saturday morning. Scattered topics bridged by a common thread. Medieval tapestry, a favored subject springs to mind. Stories depicted of idealized life, nature, beauty. Hung brightly against cold stone walls. Messages from the past, cloaked in a code of poetry and symbolism, mirth, mystery. This, of course, leads to thoughts of Illuminated texts. Neat little dogs, all types, tucked into gilt corners. I look to see a likeness of my dog among those from the distant past.
