Weaving the Cloth

Today I sit and wait for inspiration to come.


As pandora plays softly in the background a new song comes on and I flip through file after file of photographs.

Life's not the breath you take, breathing in and out

That gets you through the day, it ain't what it's all about

Austin is to little for Mcdonalds but I think he knows what he's missing

You just might miss the point, trying to win the race

Life's not the breath you take, but the moments that take your breath away

Remember the cloth that is our life? The one of many different threads seamlessy weaving in and out. Each day the pattern becomes more vibrant, ever changing as we weave. I pour my heart and soul into it's making, and though we've veered from the pattern I had planned, I've discovered this one suits me. The moments that take our breath away are here all the time, if we take the time to appreciate them.
