Rain

A reality check from a friend last Thursday has been taking a little while to digest. Gratitude takes its time to rain down - at least for those of us not fluent in emotion. A relief when it begins. Here's to friendship, in its many unexpected forms.

All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well.
                                                            - Julian of Norwich

The photo is of one of my assemblages. 

Post of non-round things resume tomorrow, that is to say, Lost Boys.

An interesting picture. A meaningful quote. A well rounded post.

It´s a beautiful assemblage & photo, and words too, they are touching. I like the movemente and the "sound" of the image.

Aleph - there is a little glass ball inside the cup, so it rings when you carry it.

there is a great deal of beauty in simplicity and also in rain and i think you have captured both rain and simplicity perfectly.

The picture is magical - I love the feeling of your blog! Kartika

This one reminds me of the glass balls filled with water which were used by shoemakers in former times to collect the light. It works. A candle gives enough light to be sewing. I tried it.

rain on me (rain is not round, right)????

You don't think of yourself as fluent in emotion?

You are certainly fluent in many, many other ways. I love your luminous raindrops/marbles/round things.

I,m sorry I have been AWOL my friend.
Alice is in Italy!

ArtSparker said...

Eva- of course you tried it. I am looking forward to your icon being a photograph of you skydiving.

Tony - it's okay, you weren't AWOL, as I had graciously consented to your holiday plans.

Bee- re fluency, it's compensation.

Titus said...

Amen to that.

let it rain, let it rain, let it rain

lovely post thanks sharing the wonderful quote from sister julian

ArtSparker said...

Mouse - the quote which has come down to us from the fourteenth century is from the writings of an anchoress and mystic who resided within the walls of the Church of Julian of Norwich. Her name may not, in fact, have been Julian - but her remarkable words live on.

This is beautiful!

A clink of two champagne glasses to that.

Love your assemblage. Your "rain" glass balls are truly meaningful of the abundance we find in friendship...how it showers us when we least expect it , touching us spherically.

Love Norwich's quote. Well, I am very fond of Norwich's writings, actually.
