I was not updating this blog as i had some thoughts on migrating my blog and yes it can happen, but in the meantime ... I was illustrating a lot of poems lately or working on my sketch/art journal pages. It is a different kind of creativity... Emily Dickinson is my all time favourite poet. Her poetry and imagery is very dear. One of the poems " Hope is a thing with feathers that perches in the soul" was a motto for last few months. I was inspired or preoccupied with birds - it started shortly after my hikes to Cootes Paradise and Wye Marsh and Tommy Thompson Park - all great places for birds watching. No i do not know much about them at all! I associate them with freedom, angels, delicate feathers and nature .... i just started to notice them more than in the past and their images, songs and colours bring artistic inspirations....
