Faithful

Many have asked me if I'm still on the creative side and the answer is: YES!!! I have finished a new altered book and another one is just about to have the finishing touches. I know it is long time since my last post but I am trying to avoid another pressure in my life.

Well I have been doing bits and pieces and here is "Faithful" - an altered book made for an 80 years old New Zealand lady I never met but her daughter, a friend of mine, asked me if I could make a book for her mother like one I made for mine. For a short period of time I had ahead of me and limited supply and no time to browse trough the secondhand shops I'm pretty happy with the result. The only thing I regret is that I didn't have time to take as many photos as I would've liked especially the completed book after bookbinding it together. There are so many little books (albums) inside this book, all with different bookbinding patterns, and I hope I will get photos taken for me and have evidence of this piece.

Didnt read your whole post...
yet, what I do 'hear' is you
have a strong desire to git OFFA
this world like Jimmy Hoffa
(he was a kingpin of the NYC mob
and my cuzzn who lives in New Yoirk
sez he's buried under the Giant's
stadium in the EndZone by the
opposing mob - yeah, a true giant).

Nevertheless...
If you do these 2 things,
which I dont - I only do em
97.79% of the time,
to love God and love your nay-bore,
you'll join this ex-sinfull mortal
in Seventh-Heaven cuzz we were faithfull
till TheEnd. Wanna? Gonna?

And I'll have yoo over for a 7-course
dinner after a fab-YOU-lous play...
among other things.

So, trustNjesus, doll,
and wiseabove this nefarious world.
God bless your indelible soul.
cya soon...
