"Antico, sono ubriacato dalla voce ch'esce dalle tue bocche
quando si schiudono come verdi campane
e si ributtano indietro e si disciolgono.
La casa delle mie estati lontane,
t'era accanto, lo sai,
là nel paese dove il sole cuoce
e annuvolano l'aria le zanzare.
Come allora oggi in tua presenza impietro, mare,
ma non più degno mi credo del solenne ammonimento del tuo respiro.
Tu m'hai detto primo
che il piccino fermento del mio cuore
non era che un momento del tuo;
che mi era in fondo la tua legge rischiosa:
esser vasto e diverso
e insieme fisso:
e svuotarmi così d'ogni lordura
come tu fai che sbatti sulle sponde
tra sugheri alghe asterie
le inutili macerie del tuo abisso." Eugenio Montale

"Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older... "
(cosa altro aggiungere quando è già stato detto e scritto tutto così bene?)
"If you go?
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so?
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby every dog on the street
Knows that we're in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing
Every breaking wave"

This was a special custom order. This quilt rack belonged to her Grandma and she has recently passed. Although not the most modern piece, it is full of sentimental value. Using handwritten notes from her Grandma, I was able to upload her handwriting into my software and print it out on vinyl to use on the freshly refinished rack. Now she can display her grandma's quilts on her rack while looking at her handwriting. I am overwhelmed by the sentiment! ❤
I hope you love it as much as I do Nikki! .
p.s. i learned all the basics (and more) from free classes i found on @scrapbookcom 👌👌totally recommend. happy cutting guys!

Fruit bats. Fruit flies. Whatever they are, they were swarming last night.

Without my glasses it was hard to read, but I think the sign said: "Beware of Snokes." Whatever that means.

When I saw the beautiful mermaid down on the rocks, I knew a bouquet of flowers wasn't going to impress her. I needed to up my game...

Looking back on it, Cookie Monster Daycare was a terrible choice for my little gingerbread boy.

May we all get what we truly need this holiday season, and may the New Year take us where we need to go. Thanks for playing along with me this past year. I really appreciate having you along for the ride, and I’ll see you at sunset soon. Love, John
