May love and passion be doubled, and your distresses halved. And everything be bigger, brighter and braver.
Yesterday I talked about ‘live poeming’ while Emily was here Saturday. I took it a step further by taking some sentence fragments from my baggie and placing them in front of her.
Make a poem, I said.
But I don’t write poetry, she said.
Magic happened next!
I went and found a stash of postcards, then discovered that there was an entirely different stash within the stash. Oh bliss! I know exactly what’s going to be happening with Postcardia for the next month or so.
I didn’t get a photo of Em’s second card (because once begun, one is never enough!) But you can seek her out on Instagram for her take on Totoro (and much other lovely stuff!).
And next time, a creative opportunity – that isn’t really your cup of tea – presents, dive in. You never know what you might find.
I’m a bit late in getting last week’s postcard photographed and into the post. Another Avante Card, this time a promo one for ACMI in Melbourne. It was made for my friend’s son who is five and off to school next year. He has a wicked imagination and I could see bits of him climbing in and out of the words and pictures.
Rob commented that it’s a bit Beatle-esque in arting and wording. I’m happy to take those compliments.
