MAGIC AND GOOD MADNESS TO YOU

Found Reference by Cara Barer. See website here.


"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself." - Neil Gaiman

ART AND THINGS

Uri Eiliaz. Read post here.

"Maybe we’re here only to say: house,
bridge, well, gate, jug, olive tree, window —
at most, pillar, tower … but to say them, remember,
oh, to say them in a way that the things themselves
never dreamed of existing so intensely."

—Rainer Maria Rilke

Many of us in this blog circle see the beauty in discarded objects. I am intrigued to see broken household objects re-fashioned into something that holds my attention..... something that I often find beautiful.


The Devil you Know by Katie Dell Kaufman. Website here.
Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder ........ and One person's junk is another person's treasure!

Leonardo Drew's work is composed with absolute trash which most people would walk past on the street and yet it is so exciting .... even beautiful. Well, it makes MY heart race!

YELLOW BOWL

Rice Grain Porcelain by Eeva Jokinen. Website here.

YELLOW BOWL

If light pours like water
into the kitchen where I
sway
with my tired children,

if the rug beneath us
is woven with tough
flowers,
and the yellow bowl on
the table

rests with the sweet heft
of fruit, the sun-warmed
plums,
if my body curves over the
babies,

and if I am singing,
then loneliness has lost
its shape,
and this quiet is only
quiet.
- Rachel Contreni Flynn
