    Well, my life is in paper so it is certainly something I need to keep alive! Very nit margot!

  • Paper is your life, Mui-Ling… I know you organize it better than most of us! Nothing beautiful here, but a mind-ramble on things I feel I have overlooked.

    stayin alive – good plan

  • Some days it seems like that’s about it : but must ‘brush yourself off and start all over again’ and ‘tomorrow is another day’ and all that! Thanks, E!

    Wonderful composition Margot….I love the placement, layering & those little primary coloured ‘rubbings’ in there. And because of your description it also makes me think of the term ‘flotsam & jetsam’ :)

  • oh, yes, Thea! Buried under it and sometimes separating the wheat from the chaff is ridiculous…all the flotsam & jetsam of daily life…. Thank your for the great interpretation!

    great image – very pleasing comp and palette, that yellow square, black triangles and those added lines show that you are really on top of it all ; )

  • Thanks for the vote of confidence : so far I have kept eveything orderly, but one get’s those “I’m losing it moment,” y’know!

    “stayin’ alive” is what I have to do if I am ever going to fill those blank lines with compelling fiction. This looks like the desk of a writer at 4PM who has gone for a walk to hold on to sanity… he will be back.

  • The lines are waiting for you… with little squiggly muses to start you off!
    [ see you soon ]
