The Five Room House

There is an Indian Proverb that says that everyone  is a house with four rooms:
a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual.
Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into
every room every day, even if only to keep it aired,
we are not a complete person.
The art quilt pictured here was inspired by this proverb
with the addition of a fifth room.
As an artist, my home must have a creative room.
Since I spend so much time in my creative room
I am reminded by the words of this proverb
to keep in touch with the rest of "my house"
The rest of the world
In order to be a complete person.
