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.

Badger in the Bluebells

Todays card is another simply made card from the wonderful Pollyanna Pickerings British Wildlife dvdrom brought to us by Creative Crafting World.The dvd is a wonderful addition to your image library...there is the possibility of lots of cards suitable for men. Even though I have made this for a lady, just by changing the lilac mount for another could easily be turned into a male card

It seems a bit cooler today...I've just wheeled Reg along the lane and at least there was a breeze. I had four of the cats today and when we all got to turnaround tree, the horse was waiting for us. The cats threw themselves onto the grass and enjoyed the shade alongside Reg.

I have my weekend planned thanks to the doctor. She came yesterday and gave me strict instructions to rest my leg. It made me laugh as if I used it much would be on a permanent But with what she said I decided to do nothing this weekend but craft. I have a number of projects in mind...hopefully I will be able to do the work and share it with you next week.

Well the coffee is calling and my leg is propped up nicely so my weekend can start. I hope that you all have a fabulous until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
