Paradise In A Dream


...Sometimes members of the public at large commit random acts of kindness that really make this artists day... for example, these lines were some of the snippets of classic poetry that were left under some of my art in my Dawanda Gallery today, by a lady called Gerdi, who is a crafter, art buyer and poetry lover from Münich, Germany. I thought I would pass it on.......
***
"If a man could pass through Paradise in a dream,
and have a flower presented to him
as a pledge that his soul had really been there,
and if he found that flower in his hand when he awake -
Aye, what then?"
*
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge~

p.s. Gerdi has a Dawanda shop called HoneyfromThe Hive where she sells lovely little lavender posie pockets and handmade bags.

Wow Jo, you HAVE been on a beautiful, creative burst! And this most recent one takes the cake! Sooo beautiful! And the kindness could not have happened to a more deserving soul. Both you and your work are wonderful. Just wanted to quickly stop by and say a friendly hello and, even more so, Thank You!

I hope you have a day filled with beauty and happy sighs.

P.S. How do you attach the other stories you might like? I've seen that once before and think it's a neat idea to be able to reference the old favorite posts (once I have more "stories" built up)! ;)
