crossing lines~

"... if you cross a line and nothing happens, 
the line loses meaning....
You keep drawing a line farther and farther away, 
crossing it every time....
You'd be surprised at how easy it is ....
To lose yourself--to get lost.
Or maybe you wouldn't be surprised.
Maybe some of you already know.

To those people, I can only say: I'm sorry."
— Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall)

there are lots of things...
I have learned along the way..
I had it written down differently..
the way the lines should cross...
trying to replicate some old hand smocking I had once done...
I kept crossing lines...
farther and farther I went...
but they kept losing meaning..

so..rather than giving up..
and feeling I had lost my way...
I decided to look at it..
from a different perspective..
cross the lines...
and reconnect...

and I found..
that this way...
not crossing so many lines..
and drawing them in..gave a form..
and the form...
had meaning...
I liked this shape...
that was what I had learned...
but you probably are not surprised~

and now it seems...
yet another pattern must be written..
but you knew this {smiles}

dreams and whims~

"I mostly lived in my dimension
Built up of fantasies and dreams,
Hardly a seeker of attention,
Yet, I preferred to act on whims."

T.K/Varenko
acting on whims~
I am..
hardly a seeker of attention...
I live in my dimension...
quietly enjoying the light~
IMG_0350
I fantasize...and dream...
for that is what keeps my days..
from veering off course...
those twists and turns of life... 
IMG_0356
and even though..
at times I am like a moth..
securely wrapped in its cocoon... 
IMG_0333
I have a built up dreams...
soft dreams of a tarn spotted amid a mountain glacier..
a pool of silvery water..
cool and pristine~~
the snow falls..
I close my eyes..
and even though I know..
this is pure whimsy...
I prefer it this way~

p.s.:I'll have another pattern ready soon~~~
