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.

Just Hanging around


Hello everyone..what a weekend..it feels as if there has been a revolving door on the house..lol. But straight back to the crafting now..lots of orders to do and a head full of ideas, Todays card is another one that I made for the design team over at Gruffies and Guests. A new challenge has begun..so why no pop over and join in the fun. The wonderful sponsers for this month are Petal U and are offering a £10 lucky dip as a prize. For the card I've chosen an image from the House Mouse triple cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. I have decoupaged the image. The greeting is from my stash and says..just hangin...which made me smile..after all the theme is boys and all the boys that I have known spend a lot of time just hanging around.

Even my daily wheel with Reg was hectic today. For the first time ever he shot off before I could get him on the lead. Hastily followed by my friend I have to add. Admittedly I had got stuck getting the wheelchair out of the door and ended up with the lead stuck in the wheel. Well Reg obviously was so desperate to get to the grass..he couldn't wait any longer..bless him. My friend said that he got to the grass and then waited for me to get there. It was harder than usual because there was a removal van and 2 large cars in the way..and 2 loose dogs .and 4 of my cats to get round. Everyone ended up laughing. When I finally got Reg onto the lead we had to go off roading as a large van then arrived on the road and decided that he needed all the road and both sides of the grass to get past me. I can tell you I was ready for a lie down myself by the time we got to turnaround tree.I was relieved to get home and have a drink. At the moment Reg is in his basket with Jeff for company and all the other cats are stretched out on the studio roof. Peace is all around today..now..lol

Well the coffee is calling and I've lots of crafting to do. I hope that you all had a great weekend. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
