BJP final and Out of town
I finally managed to snap a photo of all my BJP pages together. What I didn't manage to do was get the entire thing in focus. I tried so many different settings in all types of light, it just never came out quite like I would have liked.
Each page is approximately 4 inches by 6 inches. Most ended up stuffed with just a tad of fiberfil and all are backed with ultrasuede. To finish them off as a group, I want to add a little beaded loop so I can hang them all together.
On another note - I will be out of town, working in Florida August 17-22. I hope you have a great week!
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
