These little ones are very intricate and tiny... 

about the size of your thumb nail. 

I love making them,

I usually create these in silence so I am fully present.

Rusted Blues

This little book.

I found a journal I had made
some years ago now.
It was blank inside,  
with white paper.
I wasn't sure I liked that it had been hidden 
for so long.

So I took it apart, 
and made it into something new.

The Storyteller

16 signatures-
 384 pages counting both sides;
a very thick journal for the prolific writer,

When I hold this in my hands,
I know it's got somewhere to go very soon.
Where will it be? 
To who?

Some Quiet Moments

...for me of late.

this contemplation of a new year, 
which also feels in a way like just another run of days,
but i feel.. i sense this shifting - 
i can't quite place it.
soon it will reveal itself.

i traded coffee for tea, 
perhaps this is it. 

days seem longer, 
pacing themselves.

i tiptoe about, 
wanting to enjoy the quiet when i find it.

i've got into the old linen these past new january days, 
and am enjoying creating coptic stitched books,
 amongst other bibliographica creatures, 
in the making.

we all lost our beloved Bowie.
 what a soul, what stardust, 
a true majikal being who influenced so many of us, 
famous or infamous. 

the beauty of it. 

the intellect

back to the teapot.

Searching in the Sea

I just completed a new journal, 
which I have been working on for a while...

But first journal to finish for 2016.

Hand tearing paper, 
staining it & then re-staining for the added blue effect.

I enjoy this process, 
the space to create is filled, 
the floor and benches covered with paper.

I love looking at it all, wet, 
knowing what it will become.

It's the end of a year, 

and almost the start of another

 - if one is counting time.

A new journal in store,

a place to contemplate,
