Wedding Embroidery

I wanted to share another embroidered portrait recently finished and shipped off.....

Taken from this picture.......

Also, 4 more blank note cards....

I suppose you could say I've been a little preoccupied with chairs lately.

What's changed?

What has changed in the world since that day; nationally, globally, personally?

We all know where we were, what we were doing, who we talked to.  

For me, I was worried for my brother who was watching the towers burn from his office window.  He spent the night there, unable to get home.

All of these faces, lost loved ones.  


My brother is gone now.  Not on that day but not too long after.  

When I remember that day, I remember him.

Loved one lost......  in my changed world.

What did you learn today?

I've admired poetry from afar.  With my new coursera class, Modern and Contemporary American Poetry, I'm hoping that will change.

The first poem assigned:

I dwell in Possibility

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

Want to delve in deeper?
