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.

Jiggery Makery....Veronica calls again

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Jiggery Makery. Yes I know that it's Friday so therefore it's Jiggery Makery but it's Tuesday and I'm playing catch Jiggery Makery will be featured again on Friday, to get things back in order. This card features the very glamorous digi of Veronica. She is available to buy from the Jiggery Makery site. I have coloured her with my copics and then doodled in black over the top of her gown and then added some black glitter.What inspired me was a memory of seeing a dress in a similar style that had black crystals at the top of it. The saying is from my collection book..and it makes perfect sense to

The sun is shining here in the mountains today, even though it's very cold. I got up this morning feeling as if someone had jumped on my head. I thought that I had a cold but I'm not too head is very mussy and if I move too quickly I get a bit dizzy. I just hope that it goes away quickly.As most of you know, I have to take quite a number of tablets every day..well the doctor has now added to these and to make matters worse..the side effects now necessitate me taking another to counter act the side effects. You just couldn't make it If I have to take any more I'll be rattling round the valley.

I was visited by Hobo this morning. Luckily all my boys were inside. He decided that he would come and sit with me while I drank my morning coffee. He is a lovely boy but I can't let him in until he's been seen to. He is a big tabby boy and has a lovely thick coat. He is obviously hunting well, as I know that no one in the village is feeding him. I gave him some food which he inhaled and then made a great fuss of me. The Virgo man was here and said that it was obvious that Hob knew where to come..and I replied that yes he knew where the soft touch lived, laughing. Hobo has now gone off to do whatever he does and I've spent my time listening to AC/DC and colouring some other work.

Well the coffee is callingand then I shall be spending the time colouring ...what a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Sad I know but I love to colour.What has made me laugh lately is that they have brought out an adult colouring book...but are now calling it Art Therapy. After all most people seem to think that colouring in is only for children and that as adults they can't enjoy it anymore. Personally I've always loved to colour and have encouraged everyone I know to do it..well now it seems it's ok in the eyes of the world if you call it therapy. Then I suppose crafters must be the most together people I So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting..enjoy your
