Earth Day was April 22nd, and we hope you took a moment to appreciate the ground we walk on, the goodness that surrounds us and the beauty that is awakening with the Spring.
There are so many resources at our disposal constantly...disposal being the operative word here. I like to take the "desert island" or "small world" approach in my art and life and reuse items in new ways when needs arise. If that darn Professor on Gilligan's Isle hadn't been so charming I might be a different gal today...but I digress. The point is, there is a goodness in recycling beyond the correctness of it.
Regina the Iowa based artist at Esparto Studio makes things out of books. If you think about it, the printed word is truly something to behold.
The invention of the printing press changed the world long before the smartphone changed our lives.
Words cause us to contextualize, to relate.
In these times of constant bombardment on the mental front, it is good to hold on to a thought, a phrase, a word. If it resonates, make it part of your world - let it cheer, remind and tell you often- the truths and absurdities that you hold dear.
