Leaf and hinge



"I am the stone step,

the latch, and the working hinge. . . ."

well, the photo is up my screen for the rest of the day, that's for sure. It's even better than gorgeous.
As for Jane Kenyon - good lord. And she translated Anna Akhamotva, on top of it?
You really are something, Lori, I hope you know that.

Thanks so much for your photo and Jane Kenyon this morning.

I recommend A HUNDRED WHITE DAFFODILS, a collection published by Donald Hall after her death.

Ditto marly.

By the way, I've decided to put my basket-weaving skills to practical use; bacon placemats.

Wonderful colors!

terrific textural treat!

marly said...

Those bacon placemats are kind of horrifying!

Lori, did you see the latest Q. topic? It is so very, very Witzelian. Probably they ought to just link to your site!

Hey there folks -- am so glad to see y'all!

Lee: Sumpin'? Ah, the question is sumpin' o' what? ;-)

am: A friend of mine has that Jane Kenyon volume. Lots of loveliness in there.

Lee: We knew you knew that.

Dale: Another "out of the corner of my eye" -- sometimes I feel like these small towns are covered with fossilized butterflies, the pentimento gets to be so pretty.

Marja-Leena: Glad I can remove the need for that second cup of coffee!

Shelly: :-)

Marly: Thanks!

Anon: We really need to get you a Google account or something. You're like a super-hero of random weirdness, all Clark Kent during the day, all Salvador Dali when you visit my blog.

Knit Paint Wom: Am so glad you liked!

Raindog: Just gotta love years of "just get 'r done" painters who won't scrape and sand down to the base. More fun for folks like you and me!

Marly: Yes, my Anon Friend has a knack for turning up the most horrif-, er, interesting things. ;-) Thanks for the nudge on Q -- I had seen the invite, but didn't make The Note To Self. Just emailed the eds and told them to expect something...

Stunning image, the colours are amazing, as is the composition, thanks for sharing this.

Oh, good. I did mention to Dave that the whole concept was Chatoyance-to-the-hilt.
