Man, I love words. Always been a lover of quotes. Of how words come together, evoke emotions, etc.
When I was in high school I made a book of quotes for my boyfriend. All handwritten words that resonated with me at the time. Stuff about love and hope and friendship. All that good stuff that speaks to young love. I gave it to him and off it went into the world. My Mom, bless her heart, was so mad that I did not make copies of it at the time. She knew that someday down the road I would love to see it again (and she also thought I could have sold it LOL). And of course, because she is so smart, I would love to see it again. Who knows if it is still out there…it lives in my memory and maybe in the memory of that sweet boy I gave it to way back when.
Fast forward to 2005. My art has become a bit more sophisticated. Add in type and a bit of computer knowledge. And patterned paper. And a few accents here and there. And a new vision. A book just for me. Of quotes that speak to me in 2005. Quotes of art and creativity and simple living and growth. And a pair of wings…
