listen to your life

Sep 26, 2007 | Life in Progress

(i wish the scanner did a better job of showing the correct color of the silver leaf and bezels…oh well, you get the gist. )

“if i were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything i was trying to say, it would be something like this:
listen to your life.
see it for the fathomless mystery that it is.
in the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis, all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
frederick buechner

Sending much love,

    Your thoughts/posts this week inspired a new box by me. Take a peek over at my etsy shop or blog. Thanks for being so inspiring.

    Kelly, I’m new to this whole blogging thing & recently came across your site. I absolutely love your peaceful and thoughtful women. I saw your sidebar stating you had an article in this month’s Cloth, Paper, Scissors. It is in my stack of magazines to take on an airplane trip tomorrow. Can’t wait to have a look. I will check in frequently & see what is new at your site.

    Just beautiful.

    I have been wanting to ask you if you would be at all interested in selling pendants of your work?

    Oh geez-did I ask you this already? I have been meaning to so strongly now I can’t seem to remember. Forgive me if I have already:)

    I just got a custom order from an illustrator to make some for her and instantly thought of you.

    Your work is so beautiful.
