Generations, In memoriam

There were six of us in my family of origin and this blanket depicts six horses running. I gifted it to my Dad after my Mom passed away. This blanket covered the chair in my Dad’s bedroom where he sat and read. Just days before he died he asked me a couple of times to straighten his blanket so he could “see his horses running.” When I look at this blanket now I think these horses are carrying my Dad’s spirit across the sky.
