I have for some time been working on a Moleskine Accordian Notebook to create a book of quotes from favorite song lyrics of mine and illustrations to go with those quotes. I have created one of them for Thing 4 for Thing a Day
This one is a quote from a Soul Coughing song, So Far I Have Not Found the Science. “I don’t mind worry following me like a dinosaur.”
I also decided to show you another one that I made a few days ago from a lovely Regina Spektor song, Love Affair. “There was a love affair in this building. The kind of love affair that every respectable building wants to keep as a legend.”
I am a work in progress
dressed in the fabric of
a world unfolding
offering me intricate
patterns of questions
rhythms that never come clean
and strengths that you
still haven’t seen
-from The Slant, by Ani Difranco
My Mondo Beyondo continues to be in progress… like much of my life… I am getting more comfortable with this state. It seems like a necessity at this point. So this morning I embrace it- I am a work in progress- and that is ok- in fact it is quite good.
I found this lovely quote on Ali’s site . It gave me something to ponder.
