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.

Watching the ducks

Todays card is the one that I mentioned yesterday. It's the one that I have chosen to be the card for the new grandparents. I have again chosen an image from the fabulous Hollypond Hill cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. For some reason the picture is looking a little must be the light in the valley. Every time I photograph my cards so much depends on the light in the valley here...somedays I can take a great picture and somedays..well it doesn't work as well. I take the photos in the same place every time , using the same equipment and still it's not But the whole of this blogging journey has been a learning curve with having to learn lots of new things and I have to admit that I still love it all.

I've lots of work to do this weekend and hopefully will have lots of new products to share with you next week.Reg and Jeffrey are today in the dog house and cat house respectively...they both had a very busy night and are both in so much trouble...they managed to get hold of a new box of gravy bones and ate the lot. Jeff has never realised that they are dog treats and has loved them since he was a kitten. I have friends who take Reg out for me at night and when they come back after the walk, there are cats lined up for a dog biscuit. And they always know which visitors have dog treats in their pockets.And they never get a minutes peace until they have dished the

So I will be heading off now to begin on the pile of work that I have put ready for this weekend. I like nothing better than having lots to do..including some new discs which I will be working with. That's one of the things that I love about crafting..there are so many things that you can do, so many different crafts you can use together. I feel as if I'm always learning or trying something new..if I get bored I can just move onto something else. It's normally not a case of me being bored it's a case of me wanting to do so many things at one time...I can drive myself quite mad

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