But, one other thing I woke up with was a pattern in my mind. i wanted to sketch it, but the journal took over, so I didn't get to it. Then I checked Joey's blog for the challenge this week...lo! and behold! the pattern "Joy" was SO similar to the little bit of pattern I saw in my mind as I woke up.
String 10 is angular and curvy, and joy is a sort of random, free hand pattern. A challenging combination, to be sure.
and this is what I ended up with:
|it is disjointed and unfinished, yet there is joy...like my life.|
But look at this...there is joy, right at the foundation, and joy breaking out of the strangeness, and joy above it all. And in the corner, a speck of that flow, a little seedling of fescu reaches up from flux leaves.
I put that in, on purpose, and counted myself done with this tile.
Oh. That starburst of joy, where I colored it in gold...the tips there? THAT is the shape that I woke up with this morning! cool, eh?
