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.

The Black Cat

Todays card is another collaboration between two of my favourite cds. The vintage image is from the fabulous Fashion Boutique triple cd.I have been dying to use this image because I love the fact that she's holding a black cat.The outer frame and decoupaged pansies are from the fabulus Fancy Floral cdrom brought to us by Decoupage Delights.The backing paper is from my stash, as is the wonderful piece of lace. The lace which I just adore is available from JB-Crafting Supplies...I will be using it on a project that I'm aiming to do when ever I manage to fight my way to my sewing machine. I know that my machine is at the back of my studio..but Henry, bless him..piled stuff in the doorway and it's going to take a whole week to sort it out. I am hoping to do it sometime in the next just depends how my various ailments behave. The head may be willing but the legs are not always up to

I have yet to take Reg out for a wheel yet. The cats were playing about this morning and I had to wait for everyone to come their food time was later than normal. I'm amazed that I fed Jeff this morning..he is in so much It was only his little pathetic look on his face that resulted in meaty chunks today. You see, in my parlour I have a set of floor to ceiling shelves. The TV is in front of them..secured to them in that the cats cannot knock the TV over. Now even though the cats use the shelves in my corner as a cat shelf, none of them have ever gone on to the large shelves..that was until last night and the cat that caused chaos was of course Jeff. He climbed up Twinkles pen, walked across the top of the TV (even though it's not even an inch wide) and then progressed to the top shelf of the unit. Once there (and now he can't be reached) he proceeded to push the photos and ornaments out of the way so he could lie down. Well the air was blue. He absolutely refused to move and without my builder and a ladder there was no hope. He must have stayed there for an hour and ignored every try to tempt him down When he eventually decided he wanted down he couldn't work out to do and ended up sliding down a nearby dresser upsetting one of the other cats in the process. And this morning he looks at me like butter wouldn't melt, demanding his

Well the coffee is calling. Happy news..I now have glue..thanks to my friend so at least I can get on with some work. It has been said that it may rain least it will test my new drain..I shall be reporting the results as they happen..lolSo until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
