Kahlil Gibran

"Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite.
Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody.
But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?

Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul. If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.
For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.
Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing;
And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes."

as random as i get

It is impossible to be random!lord knows i try but its impossible. the human brain likes harmony. my human brain, likes harmony yet can neither achieve pattern perfection nor complete chaos!

excuses excuses

I have not really been up to doing much of late, the seriously horrible cold and tummy issue coupled with overwhelming tiredness really put a crimp in my joie d'vive (is that how you spell that?) anyway I am looking forward to vast improvement now, thanks to thyroxine.

But before starting that I had tried to galvanise myself into some sort of action and in the process come across a very old friend. Lone is one talented lady, we were at school together and both had an artistic bias to almost everything we did. To my delight she was the tutor at a small sewing class predominantly patchwork and quilting based, a smattering of Scandinavian knitting took place also as an aside. Lone's Danish roots very much in the fore there!

It was very social, and enjoyable much like the get together at the vicarage, which I profoundly apologise for not having managed to drag myself to of late.

sewing was ensuing

I will be pottering along with my own WIP's for the foreseeable.
