I've been watching Random Notes daily for my Sweet Tweet journal entry, which I mailed at the last possible moment. It popped up, for sure, in my mailbox yesterday - the label fell off!! I had spent almost as much time on the envelope as the page so the postal carrier took pity on me and brought it back for an address.
I used this quote on one of the pages I made for the visual journaling workshop I recently completed (over but not abandoned!). And, since the theme was birds and sweet, I thought it fit rather nicely. I think we are all tempted to let a pesty nest start tangling in the do, now and again anyway. My favorite ways to disassemble the sorrow roost in whatever stage I manage to catch it, are making art, wandering through blogland and keeping in touch with people who use their time and talents to create projects like the journal this page will hopefully end up in - if it gets there in time.
Jane at Random Arts is one of my all-time favorites... pal, artist, shop owner, blogger... she has the kind of light that shines just when a dark moment threatens. I noticed, by the way, that she's hosting Michael deMeng again this year for a workshop that promises to be as breathtaking as last years' Morpheus Box/assemblage class I was lucky enough to attend. Oh, still my beating heart!
