a join

 one little join
on a tibetan book
which had to be understood
because it is beautiful
~the other side~ 
see how this icy puddle 
reflects the sky
just like the bluest blue 
on the page of prayers
~~~
been working
 needle and thread 
a few more joins 
more and more circles

i DID!! i don't know why that happened; it didn't show up the first times. but i am so glad to have discovered them now. it's like having an army of ants working for you. except it's ALL YOU! so you, so perfect.

there's something about stitching that tugs at my heart....

Velma Bolyard said...

aimee, i'm an army of ants.
ronnie, because it's elemental, perhaps

I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, yet I never
found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me.
In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will likely
be a lot more helpful than ever before.

the icy puddle and the two grey circles are a symphony of stillness

The beautiful misty shades of grey always tug at my heart (especially when meditatively stitched). I am also partial to the rich verdigris blue/green in your Bright post.

Velma Bolyard said...

robyn, thanks, i think responding to color is hugely important.
