Lay, Lady, Lay

Yesterday Jude at Spirit Cloth posted
some lovely thoughts about one of the privileges
of aging (NO, not being slowed down by arthrosis -
being able to witness decay in a calm and constructive
way...)

Talking about aging - even the Cloth Creatures
seem to be growing up lately.
Please meet this new Cloth Lady:












"... Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead"

(Bob Dylan: Lay, Lady, Lay)
