  6. Very very Much Enjoyed!

    Thanks for tumblr-n the goodies, too. Hope your back is stronger--one would have a bad back with Caro's conceptualized dreamer book? May yours be full of joy and light and autumn like days full with new carvings.

  7. Paula, I had to think of something to catch your attention :-)

    Thanks Shayla.

    Sacha, thank you.

    Laura T, the Henry Moore photo is magnificent isn't it?!

    Kathryn, I'm glad you liked my choice of images. There were so many to choose from.

    Mansuetude, my back is so much stronger and I'm back carving. So many ideas!! Caro's Dreamer Book really appealed to me. I think it's heavy with ideas :-)

  9. A wonderful way of saying it, and I so love it too!
    Would not want to carry it in my heart, was my first thought, then i thought, But even if we dream a whole world it is so light within us this dream power, pure energy threaded power, flowing into the heart eye and hand.

    Onward!

  21. The various interpretations made from one subject, never ceases to amaze me! I love the organic nature of Henry Moore's sculpture and I especially love the concept of being transported within the piece and looking beyond.
