Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Sunday, 17 November 2013's christmas..well nearly

What  a day..visitors and a computer that doesn't want to play. Today has been the day of the frozen computer..let's switch it off and start Everyone knows that I'm not very good with the technical today has really tried every nerve that I have. It has taken half an hour to write this much..I know I can be rather slow but this..I think todays chat will be a short
The card is from Joanna Sheens Triple House Mouse cdrom. There are just so many images on the 3 are really spoilt for choice. And happily for those of us who love this artwork..the hoppers and gruffies are due to arrive on their own cd come the end of the week. I will be one happy bunny...any guesses for what animal I adore?
Well my lovely computer man has just arrived so I'm off to pick his brain. This is probably my shortest blog and has taken the longest time..lets hope things improve by tomorrow. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
