strong glue

words that build up

soft . well worn jeans..Levis mostly

an almost opaque shade of white wash

how torn paper looks . sounds . feels falling from pages

smooth wood . resting in the palm of your hand

a delicate yet abstract crack

an unraveled heart

or two

ELK, i always, always thrill when i see your name posted under imperfect prose... and you never disappoint... how you show him to me, through your creativity, and words like: how torn paper looks . sounds . feels falling from pages.

love to you. xox

I love torn paper. I also love paper soaked in coffee (for an aged look) and burnt around the edges. (We learned to do that for a treasure map in early school years and I've never forgotten and used it all these years later.)

I feel such calm and peace when looking at your pieces.

Betsy said...

I always feel more relaxed after being here!
