I think I have said before that when I do a card, Tag, Altered Box etc I have to have a reason for everything included, to be included, I usually have a story in my head, especially with the Clarity Stamps because they evoke all sorts of tales and memories because they have come from all sorts of tales and memories in Barbara's head. I suppose its like poetry, if you write it from the heart or from deep routed feelings, the chances are that it will also touch someone else's heart. I felt so honoured this week when a Lady who follows Clarity asked me if she could use one of my Poems, she said her Daughter had died six months ago and my Poem was perfect for her Daughter. Wow how humbling that is to think that my little poem meant something to her with all the emotions she must be going through right now. I had written it for a Clarity Design card which I had wanted to do for a long time and actually have always wished I could put a Bench close to where my Mam is laid to rest so that I can just sit with her for an hour or two. At least she does have a beautiful Old Oak Tree right above her.
|I place a Bench, I plant a Tree |
where you can come to remember me.
I cry on your Bench, but still I can see,
Your Life and Your Spirit in the beauty of the Tree.
