my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

e.d.

i tied up these holey sorrel leaves
with cotton thread like a family for
a new cross stitch theme from 
nadinei am happy that even 
thinking about embroidery
brought me to the plants.

n, thank you




















and may i show the fog that lied down behind our
fence yesterday`s evening. it is always mistery for 
me seeing it - i knew about some far away lands
and while the mist is around, it is all true.

  10. you are welcome, olga.
    imagine if you could stitch the rolling mist?
    or maybe, you already have, somewhere, in your thoughts?
    thank you for playing.

    1. nadine,

      the quote
      you`ve shown
      !

      imagined, only
      when it binds trees
      and grasses ferns so
      they stand still

      it`s been two days now -
      i was trying to leave you
      a word for your beautiful
      photos, but could not
      -

      so many things at ones,
      your family, wild nature
      letter i`ve read - it won`t
      hurt saying again how happy
      i am to see it.

      the light,
      it`s my old phone
      still do not believe
      it can catch light like this,

      nice day to you
      cooler than yesterday,
