Each autumn I find myself inspired by the autumn roses.
I love that they are still there,
made even more lovely by their beginnings of faded autumn decay.
I love the name Autumn Rose.
I think if I were to have had a little girl I would have called her Autumn Rose, is that not a lovely name?
But instead I will offer up this name, put it out there if you like, make something new.
Begun in the autumn and inspired in the most poignant way by the roses I catch glimpses of around me,
they make me take a breath,
and want to possess them in a way I cannot.
and somehow collage together,
beautiful material and pieces of crochet has been growing for a while.
........and I wonder if I am infact one who journals?
I know I am a collector of pretty things.
and the scribbler of good advice, and I do love to remember a good quote.
so I think this journal will become a place to collect my quotes and scribblings together.
If you could see my wall of post-its, you'd understand.
and now I have a new way of typing these quotes,
........and I'm really rather happy about that. Brother de luxe is very at home here!
My first quote will be this one by Eckhart Tolle, that I keep going back to at the moment,
"some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that a space is being created in your life for something new to emerge"
I'm really trying to go with that.
Before October is over I must show you this months screen saver picture found on geninne's art blog. Her birds and artwork are lovely and I actually kept her December screen picture up for months. I think the same may happen with this one too. Another pink glow in my life!
Hope the autumn is going well for you,
