one


neither painter nor author . only a torn paper word and curved paper bird

there is joy in a motto

melodies played in the comfort of time

even a special discovery in a 52 week journey

every Friday in 2011 simple birds . simple words will perch here

paper and cloth . cut and stitched in various forms to share as we live out the year

I was wondering what project you would do next. What a cool idea, you come up with the best things. I don't have a specific project in mind yet, other than to shoot more, but you've got me thinking now...
