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.

46th Anniversay

Todays card is for a 46th wedding anniversary. It turns out that the theme for a 46th anniversary is a piece of poetry. Personally I think that after 46 years it should be something a bit more fabulous but hey ho. I used a glitter girls board..I think it's called tall's a board that makes a tall book. Onto this I decoupaged some flowers from the Joanna Sheen cdrom called The Royal Horticultural Society. It is one of the older cds but has a wealth of images of different flowers,plants and fruits. I also added an inkpot and a quill to tie in with the poetry theme. Hanging from the bow is a pair of angel wings to tie in to the poem. I hope they like it.

It is a lovely day, here in the mountains.Taking Reg for a wheel was a joy..we were joined by Milky, Rave, Tankie and Jeff. I'm afraid that my cats are getting used to the limelight and now seem to be very relaxed when people take their photos. People seem to find it so unusual that the cats come for a doubt we will end up being posted on As I was sitting at Turnaround tree I was looking at some trees that have grown round a local suddenly struck me that I can remember these trees being planted about 20 years ago. They now look magnificent and are just taking on the colours of Autumn. AsI sat I pondered on the fact of how lucky I am to live in such a place where I get to see the seasons change. It only seems a blink ago that I was saying how much blossom there were on the blackberry brambles and now the blackberries are ready to be picked. I shall have to convince my friend to do battle with the brambles. As henry used to say then we could have a taste of summer in the middle of winter.

When the post arrived it brought a package that I wasn't expecting. It was from one of my design teams and contained alot of no doubt the weekend will see me stamping my little heart out. I just love stamping and don't get to do as much as I want to..but I shall designate the weekend to playing with my inks. I may even get my embossing powders out. Something to look forward to...see it doesn't take that much to make me

Well the coffee is until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
