Weekly Collage

wk 37-08

I was working on the very last of the scrap - sewing half pages and collecting the trimmings. I figured I'd make another scrap wallpaper for the other bulletin board in the studio. As I was ironing the this new piece of wallpaper, I started thinking about this week's weekly and (duh) why not use this piece of fabric? So I did. I like the way it turned out and it's fairly close to the drawing I did on the 3rd of Sept.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~ Kahlil Gibran

(Edited on Wed 10 Sept: I can't believe I forgot to add the quote that inspired the original sketch - better a day late than never.)



Living consciously...

My favorite part of the reading, a quote from 'graffiti discovered in Harvard Business School Lounge': What are you pretending not to know?

I just love it. The reading and the practice hit on one of my passions -- make a commitment to learning. The journey's endless and I haven't been bored yet.
