“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it's the answer to everything. To ''Why am I here?'' To uselessness. It's the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it's a cactus.” ~ Enid Bagnold ~
“What pursuit is more elegant than that of collecting the ignominies of our nature and transfixing them for show, each on the bright pin of a polished phrase?” ~ Logan Pearsall Smith ~
note: much to my amazement, after completing this piece with gold threads and one strand of burlap, I came across this quotation!
“Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives, and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.” ~ anon ~
My husband, Richard, and I create from our studio at A Writer's Garden in Stonington, CT where, for the past 24 years, our passion has been illustrating the written
word in various mediums, most recently through our published book, "the cat who lost its meOW" . . . I've also been trademarked as "The Journal Lady®" for 20 years. Visit our website below for an in depth peek at our work.
