more words worth pondering...

well, I'm all out of images today... 
too busy of late! Have not been around at all for days... wanted to leave a sign of life at my blog....so very quickly ... I happened across Risky Wiver blog and these words decided to come with me to my blog...
words are good.....especially a few brief ones that get you thinking...hope you are all well... I'll be back when I can...

Every day we have around 6,000 thoughts; most of them are repeats.

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.
- Japanese proverb

Don't be concerned about being disloyal to your pain by being joyous.

Oh Sophie - oh Sophie - you're journal pages are gorgeous - they are the fruit, the seed, the plant, the life - I'm in awe of what you've captured so passionately, so vibrantly, and so dramatically in this year's residency experience! Every image wowed me more and more - we've got to talk about me buying one, please! I need to know which work is for sale! Marvelous, so marvelous. Thank you, Sophie! The work that flows forth from you is so powerful emotionally and is a tribute to your observations and interpretations and dedication. Wow.
Have a great remainder of the year!

Sophie Munns said...

Thank you for your really warm response Elizabeth.
The year was a huge one in many ways.. all the people I met or came across for a start who are passionate and committed to working in their own way towards Seed Biodiversity and preservation.
If showcasing their stories and work helped along with the bit I was doing then Im glad...anything that goes towards making the audience who cares and communicates about this aspect of eco-sustainability larger is critical.
And urgent!
Thanks you for all your well wishes!
Best to you,
S xx
