I’m here! I have things to share! A cat. $1.99 Trader Joe’s bags. A super cool video. A poem. More visual journal pages. Raise your hand if you have a good source for wood panels to paint & collage on top of. Besides the commercial art stores, I mean. 2 thumbs up if you are okay with ending my sentences with prepositions.
The rose is from a small pack of vintage collage papers I picked up in Lisbon. It’s an old decal sticker that you have to soak in water to release. I just glued the entire thing onto my page.
You who love peaches, eat this poem:
From blossoms comes
this brown paper bag of peaches
we bought from the boy
at the bend in the road where we turned toward
signs painted Peaches.
From laden boughs, from hands
from sweet fellowship in the bins,
comes nectar at the roadside, succulent
peaches we devour, dusty skin and all,
comes the familiar dust of summer, dust we eat.
O, to take what we love inside,
to carry within us an orchard, to eat
not only the skin, but the shade,
not only the sugar, but the days, to hold
the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into
the round jubilance of peach.
There are days we live
as if death were nowhere
in the background; from joy
to joy to joy, from wing to wing,
from blossom to blossom to
impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.

Go for a walk in the mountains of Basque country with Julie & Sebastian. You will DIG this video. No kidding allowed on Sundays. Go on press play.
I just ordered an adaptor to connect my laptop to my LCD projector so I can show cool things to the baby werewolves. I can’t wait to get it! After I show THIS to them, we’re going to cut paper, and stick stuff to other stuff and it’s going to be fun! YAAAA YAAAA!!!
