i make things with metal, words, and sound.

Ecclesiasticus said so

How interesting … words that came across my way, today, by way of Ecclesiasticus – “He has placed before you fire and water; stretch out your hand for whichever you choose.”

I have been sensing too much “water” energy in my life recently.  Time to take up the fire. A project is overdue to move forward.

here’s the text in the mirror…..musings on women’s work & thriftiness

A woman’s work is never done. There

now it’s as good as new. Darn it! I just fixed

that yesterday! Waste not, want not. It’s

perfectly good…that’ll hold it for a while. Wasted knots

not wanted. A stitch in time saves nine.

Nine stitches, just in time. (She thought she was done.) Idle

hands are the devil’s workshop. Not

again! Here let me have that… (Knot again.) A penny

saved is a penny earned. Sometimes, it seems I’ve

only earned a penny spent. A woman’s work is done.
