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.

Lady in Pink

Todays card features a beautiful lady who was created by the artist Di Kaye. It features on a cdrom which has gone astray from my collection. As soon as it appears I will post the title and producer. It's all thanks of course to Jeffrey who is continuing to cause chaos in the cottage. He can make my stash disappear and it turns up in the strangest places. The cdrom will turn up and as soon as it does I'll be posting all the I had already printed out this lovely lady, so I decided to make the card and share it with you. I liked the fact that she was wearing a pink dress and that the background featured some brown colours...just a little different. I edged the image with art deco borders and created the end border using black and pink flowers.
I am amazed that I am able to blog today..the internet connection has gone on and off all day. No doubt BT are doing something in the village. It has given me a headache trying to do my work...a lot of my work is it did get to the point that I was ready to throw it out of the At the moment, fingers crossed, it seems fine. I look at all the internet services and all that you can get..provided you have the right speed...well I think that it may well be another 20 years before we have any speed other than

I'm feelings lots better today, thank goodness. Yesterday was a disaster. When I went down to cook dinner, I managed to fall over. I was walking to the cooker, bearing in mind that I have only one speed and it's, and suddenly my knee gave way and I ended up on the floor, crying like a fool. I have come to the conclusion that sometimes when you cry, it's like a pressure gauge going off. I remember sitting on the floor crying,with all the cats sat round me looking at me. They must have thought that I had lost the plot.I got upstairs..more by luck than anything to my chair and had another little cry. I managed to get my leg up and it felt a bit better. Sparkle then arrived and continued to cook the dinner. What a day yesterday was. I'm so glad that it's behind me now.

Well the coffee is calling and I have lots of work to do. The wind is raging at the moment but at least it's not raining. I'm looking forward to doing some colouring or 'art therapy' as it is now I hope that you are all having a good day and that you get to do something that you enjoy. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
