Style

"Style is a very simple matter;
it is all rhythm.
Once you get that,
you can't use the wrong words.
But on the other hand here am I sitting after half the morning,
crammed with ideas, and visions, and so on,
and can't dislodge them, for lack of the right rhythm.
Now this is very profound, what rhythm is,
and goes far deeper than any words.
A sight, an emotion, creates this wave in the mind,
long before it makes words to fit it."

Virginia Woolf~

so,I have the key...
it seems..to the style...
and I sit,crammed with ideas...
and visions...
IMG_9506
but the key is to put these ideas...
into a concrete form...
a shape...not just a vision...
IMG_9510
so I find the rhythm...
for the styles...
and to me...
this rhythm becomes profound...
IMG_9733
and the idea dislodges...
round and round...
the styles becomes concrete...
IMG_9720
the deep waves in my mind...
the sight...
the emotion...
all seem to fit...
IMG_9805
there are no wrong words...

so,it seems that... 
it was a simple matter after all...
I have found my style...

Beautiful series of photos. Wonderful post, too.
nicole said…
Your writing/photography/crafting style is wonderful. And so is that book. It's one that I own and look at often.

One of the joys of getting older is being true to oneself and not being afraid of expressing our personal style even if it doesn't line up with the fashion of the moment.

I look forward to the patterns to your beautiful wrist-warmers. Just my style!
Doreen said…
I am always so excited to see your blog posts Theresa - this is nothing short of genius. How do you find the words - let alone the style?!! This concept of having all the ideas and visions teaming in one's head...and yet not finding the way to channel them, to release them, to form them in reality...its a struggle that I too can relate to...but I thought I was the only one...how enormously comforting to know that it is a struggle shared.
peaknits said…
another simply beautiful post - I can't wait to see more, your personal designs - exciting!
Yes, you have found your style...it's pure poetry whatever you do!

Your photos are just so stunningly beautiful. I came here from your Flickr profile and was wondering if you could tell me why you are blocking me on Flickr? My ID is gentletouches. Have never been blocked by anyone before and would be interested in knowing the reason. I think at one time a few months ago, I put a couple of your photos in my Favorites without commenting. I was looking through someone else's slideshow of their Favorites and added a few of theirs to my own but didn't have the time then to go comment myself. Would that be why you have blocked me? I would appreciate it if you would reconsider.

fil@home said…
it's always a pleasure to come and visit your blog. Happy for you. It's like reading what is actually happening on my mind, like trying to find a path to let these ideas to come out and be translated so that they can turn out to be alive....
love that book too.
