With Thanks to the Field Sparrow

Monday's With Mary

"With Thanks to the Field Sparrow,Whose voice is so Delicate and Humble" By Mary Oliver

"I do not live happily or comfortably
with the cleverness of our times.
The talk is all about computers,
the news is all about bombs and blood.

This Morning,in the fresh field,
I came upon a hidden nest.
It held four warm,speckled eggs.
I touched them.
Then went away softly,
having felt something more wonderful
than all the electricity of New York City."

Yes,Indeed.Thank you field Sparrow.

Some new pieces.

"Follow your Heart"Altered Wood Shadowbox

 "Dream Big and Laugh Hard"

 Felt and Lace Cuff

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by
