blossoms speak

This seems to be the little combo that wanted to be posted today. Who am I to argue?

drat I think I lost my comment - I hate when that happens!

I want to tell how much I love this piece! The fluttery feel of it - the exuberance it gives!

Wonderful job of collaging!

Your delightful collage brightens my wintery, snow-covered day!

However, the quote you attached, out of context, sounds a bit like an encouragement for pollution. I am sure that is not what you intended. :)

lucy said...

thanks rebecca. i, too, hate it when that happens!!

barbara--it saddens me to think that you might consider the "trail of who you are" to be rubbish :-)

Laure said...

oh the bread crumbs you leave behind you, lucy ...

sacred, inspiring, challenging, honest, creative, vibrant, silly, compassionate .........

these crumbs of yours nourish ... yes they do!

Tess said...

What a great combination indeed, and I love the quote. What different trails we leave indeed. I'm just taking a break from some more genealogy research, so this is really timely for all those trails I'm chasing down. I wonder if in a couple of hundred years someone will be wondering about my life.

Barbara said...

Perhaps I was being too literal in my reading of the quote, lucy. A superficial reading, indeed, from your and others' responses.
On the other hand, I have always felt drawn to the inscription on Keats' tombstone: Here lies one whose name was writ in water. He left his writing, his intellectual property and little else behind. In a way, I admire that.

laure--thank you for the wonderful descriptors...it is my hope that all of those are tidbits of who i am and what i leave behind

tess--with all of the little trails you are leaving behind, hopefully your ancestors won't have to labor too hard to find you :-)

barbara--a scientist, literal? those are pretty great trails that keats left behind.

always glad to have your perspective!

I'm glad you didn't argue with your combo - it's great. Where does the inspiration come from? It seems to be evading me at the moment!!

Gabriella Moonlight said...

Beautiful paper art...the quote enhances the creative part that is there. Your posts always INSPIRE!!

Thank you!

lucy said...

ER--nice to see you. the inspiration never seems to come from any one place and often surprises even me! it just bubbles around in different forms and then all of a sudden says, here i am. whacky, but true :-)

GM--a love the term "paper art". thank YOU!!
