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.

Classic Cars

Todays card was an order for a car mad guy on his 50th. birthday. The image is from a Joanna Sheen cdrom which has now been retired. I use all my me all my cds form my image library and it is such a resource to have. From babies to lions and everything in between. I think that it's a sort of crafting comfort blanket..I know that within a few moments I will be able to find something suitable for anyone. I have to admit though that my cdroms probably count into the hundred or I can remember when I only had about five and it was a whole new world to me then. Another crafting journey that I've been along and loved every minute.

I took Reg for a wheel today and we were joined the whole time by Bailey..a neighbours dog. He wanted to play with the cats but they were having none of it. Bailey tried so hard to play with Jeffrey but he refused..he just lay there and looked on with disdain. On the way back I stopped to chat with Baileys Mum and blow me Jeff and Rave went for a look round her house. She was laughing that Jeff was only looking for treats. I warned her not to let him see any gravy bones...he just loves them. He has a tub of treats at home and helps himself despite it having a lid...I have even tried sealing the lid with masking tape and he managed to undo that.

An exciting evening tonight with athletics from Glasgow. So the cardmaking will be done alongside all the excitement.And the same tomorrow..I've my afternoon planned..nothing better I think. Well the coffee is calling so..I hope you have a wonderful take care and happy crafting
