An excerpt from my current reading pleasure, A Ship Made of Paper:
The sky is dark blue and the autumn sun is warm and steady, as if promising that winter will never arrive. A slow breeze moves down the street, carrying the perfume of the slowly dying leaves, a nearby field’s last mowing, the river. What can the world do to you with its beauty? Can if lift you up on its shoulders, as if you were a hero, can it whoopsie-daisy you up into its arms as if you were a child? Can it goad your timid heart, urge you on to finally seize what you most shamefully desire? Yes, yes, all that and more. The world can crush you with its beauty.
I am redoing the inner walls of my frontal cortex in deep shades of red. Gold sequins litter the floor. The wallpaper and fabric patterns are competing in a fierce battle. What a spectacular gaudy mess things are becoming.
Look. Birds. They’re everywhere. I’m in love with this blog that lives in Mexico. I think you’ll be charmed as well. Head south for a visit to Geninne’s Art Blog
And…drum roll please, she has stamp carving tutorials.
