Waves of Light

journal pages inspired by a Rumi quote that found me and spoke to me today

magpies-nest-waves-of-light1

the flower border is part of an envelope that my dear friend Lennie sent to me back in 2004  🙂 … I washed it with yellow paint … the angels face is from Paper Whimsy

Mr Magpie wondered where her arms are 😉

and here is another quote that came my way today …

“Winter teaches us about detachment, numbness.  But it’s a way to get through.  From winter we learn silence and acceptance and the stillness thickens.” ~Gail Barison, The Winter Solstice of my Soul

*footnote = it happened after looking at my pages on the computer screen …

they clearly needed a border at the top*

  7. Like this one very much. Quote is deep… hmmm. Love all the aspects of this layout. It is marvelous…. I am still immerged in the quote. You can tell the Mr that her arms are behind her back scratching her wings…. you know winter itch! OK, that wasn’t nice after such a moving beginning to this comment but I couldn’t let it pass especially with your winter quote and my winter itch. Thank you for being you! xoxo
