Bead Journal Project - Uninspired...
Well, finally - my last month of the BJP for 08-09. I really did finish is quite awhile go, I was just late in taking and cropping photos.
This one is called "Uninspired". By the time I was able to sit and work on this piece, that is exactly what I was... uninspired. It does not mean I do not like the end result because I do. It is just that nothing inspired me to bead, this was mindless beading, following the design of the fabric with no personal inspiration at all, but I happen to love the colors. Sometimes it is nice to sew beads and sequins to fabric with no thought.

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
