Perspective

Looking out into the world...
looking out to Blue Monday with
Smiling Sally

or peeking in through a window pane...

"This is what I think art is and what I demand of it:
that it pull everyone in,
that is show one person
another's most intimate
thoughts and feelings,
that it throw open the window of the soul."
Felix Mendelssohn

John William Godward


Speaking of art...here's my latest piece.
'Wisdom begins in wonder'
with my homemade nest of found objects...
put together almost like a skilled mother bird.
also seems a bit of leopard sneaks
into also every piece

Thanks for coming by to share
my thoughts and feelings
and I pray you will see
some wonder today.

Eye candy is what I see today. I think your nest is interesting and clever. You have art talent Candy. I loved the quotes and the window views as well. You are a wonder.
