A Calmer




































...the moths are eating away at the chestnut trees
again - quite a sad sight...

"Whether success or failure: the truth of a life really
has little to do with its quality. The quality of life is
in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight. The capacity
for delight is the gift of paying attention."

(May Sarton - borrowed at Whiskey River)

There is a kind of round boat called a coracle. This is a sweet little craft of sorts.

"Everything that forces us to slow down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace." (May Sarton)

What beautiful work you do. Have you a shop somewhere?

Little pearls-for wisdom? A truly lovely, calm suggestion of a treasure within.

Thank you everybody...
About the shop - here´s how it is: being on the dole, I happened to end up in a preparatory programme by the Berlin employment agency supporting starts into self-employment - which is good (one isn´t molested by them otherwise) + not so good (one has to follow their rules, and their bureaucratism...), so - I´ll do it, but not before August... :)

Oops. I must have hit the wrong button and sent all my comments as links to my blogs. I'll try again. Sorry for the deluge of comments, but I've been away, and you have too many wonderful new things for me not to comment on them. I love the beautiful mix of materials in this one. Makes me want to go back and practice my crochet, now that I see how lovely it is mixed with other things.

Hi Robin - I don´t mind the "deluge" at all... thank you!
