Do not speak of meaning; you may hear the wind But we will not communicate
Last week we had several days when I woke up to the sound of rain. Sometimes gentle, sometimes near torrential. I spent all week home alone, so the sounds of water were a welcome company. I had planned to do a lot of writing and took the week off from making things by hand, but I ended up writing a little, folding papers a little, and relaxing a lot. Probably just what I needed after working hard all spring.
This Mixed Media Monday collage is something I worked on all night before launching my writing staycation. Sometimes I work the best very late at night, but it's not a good long term solution for obvious reasons. Still, I'm very much a night owl and I doubt that will ever change.
Can you spot all the people in this photo? For the longest time I only saw one! This blog photo is an enlarged version of the original, so it's not as hard to see the others.
I love map markings.
Domed metal findings are sewn through the top and bottom edges of the shallow box I made to house this collage.

Refreshed by the lazy week I hope to get a lot done this week. Maybe trying out some less used book structures would be a nice change to my bookbinding routines. What's your plan for the week?
