thought for today....

Thank you, Suze, for this one!

TWO WOLVES
One evening an old Apache told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. 
He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
"One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."The other is   The Spirit  - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:"Which wolf wins?"
The old Apache simply replied, "The one you  feed.."

solder love

Last Sunday I soldered with a friend, using her wonderful butane tool which I greatly envy....and these are what I created.....
 
This one using Angela Cartwright transparencies, patterned paper, and a piece of twine.
 
These two back-to-back; the window is a photo I took of an exquisite window in Boston, the other images are Angela's, the female collaged over the archway.

 

These two again collaged with varying elements - words, ribbons, papers - using Angela Cartwright transparencies.  Other images may be included from other sources.
This is one of my favorite things to do!
