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.

Autumn Leaves

Yes I know it's not a card butI felt like sharing what I saw on my way back from taking Reg for a wheel.It is a beautiful day here in the mountains, the sun is shining and the leaves are beginning to fall. I'm at the moment working on some autumn leaves for a project and spotted these. As always my photography isn't the best but the colours took my breath away.Not till you look closely do you realise what a variety of colours can appear on just one leaf. Don't worry I haven't gone all hippy dippy..I'm just going to rework my leaves. We had Milky, Tankie, Pinkie,Rave and Jeff with us today. It was the nearest I came to off roading today..I ventured into the side of the field to pick these leaves andI have to say it was hard work. Reg who was attached to the chair, looked at me as much to say what on earth are you doing. I can say that it took me a long while to get out of the field and I won't be doing it again any time soon...but if you don't don't know.

I have spent the morning cutting out decoupage and have lots of work to do. I also spent about an hour looking for the safe place where I had put my spare card blanks. Why is it that it seems like such a good spot at the time and then when you need the have no idea where any of it But I finally found the next 30 cards have at least have a base card now. I also managed to clear a shelf in my bedroom to put all my creams on. The doctor has decided that I have a couple more problems and has given me 5 lots of cream for my hands and my face. By the time I have used all these creams and potions I should look like a new person..well anyone can My thinking was rather than have them scattered around the house,they can all live in my bedroom and I can see to them all when I get up and when I go to bed, and I can sit comfortably and do it all. How my life is changing. Since Henry passed it has been a case of learning a new routine and trying to find a way to do things unaided. Some days it's really hard and what would be a simple job for most people can knock the stuffing out of me. But I will get there in the end. Fingers crossed.

Well the coffee is calling. I hope that you have all had a fabulous weekend. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
