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.

Left of Center.....New Challenge

 Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and will run for the following week. The theme for this week is it's a perfect time to get out all those glitters and bling. And who as a crafter doesn't have a secret stash of all things sparkly? I have so much, I should be attending a help meeting. One visitor said he had never seen so many shades of glitter..dry,wet or I told him that as far as I was concerned it was a need...after all you never know what you're going to use until you start creating. But if for some reason you don't like always have the option of going LOC. For all details of that..just have a read on the blog.

We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous Lacy Sunshine. Why not pop over and take a look at all the fabulous images that are available to buy.

I'm sorry that I haven't been on this week..only since Reg passed, I found that I just had to switch off for a while. I got loads of work together and just lost myself in colouring and painting. I do have to say that writing the blog today is rather hard as Raven has decided that she wants to sit on my wrist and arm as I And she must be happy..she's purring like a little engine.

It's a lovely day today here in the mountains but I still think it's cold. The village no doubt will be full of holiday makers. All I can hear though is the sound of banging. All the second home owners seem to come up to do work, so every fine day over a bank holiday all you can here is banging, drilling and sawing. There is nothing better than the sound of logs being chopped at midnight. Now a chainsaw has of joys.Obviously we only live here so are given no thought..after all we are the peasants and must remember to doff our caps at the think I'm going to need a coffee soon.

Well the coffee is calling, as I said and then I think I need to finish some of the work that I've started. Most of the cats are outside, enjoying the dry weather. I will be back later with another design team make. I hope that you all have a wonderful Easter weekend..without the sound of a chainsaw. So until later...take care and happy crafting.
