Pink Artist offering... part 2
Click on the photo if you want a really enlarged view
I completed a second square today for the Pink Artist project. I've had this wonderful rose quartz flower that I have been itching to put to use in something. I had pink beads out already after working on the first square, it all just seemed right.
I really like these pink beads (did I really just say that?), don't they look good enough to eat?
Tomorrow I might be feeling red, or possibly yellow. I'll know when I get there... such fun!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
