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.

JiggeryMakery...presents Fay and a Freebie

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. This design is called Fay  and is available to buy from the Jiggery Makery page.

I have the womens triathlon on Saturday, the marathon and men's triathlon on Sunday and a canvas to work on. That is, if I can find I managed to find my glue yesterday but I've looked for the canvas and just can't find it. I've found my larger canvases but not the smaller one that I want to work on. Again it's driving me mad. I have everything else ready to go but no sign of the canvas. I shall hope to keep calm and find
