String Me Along

I am a fiber artist who finds beauty in worn out things and promise in something as simple as a snipet of string or a scribble on a scrap of paper. A tree-hugging, faerie lover who, as my brother would tell it, ate too many crayons as a child. This is a blog of the words and images that speak to me.
My heart is an unmade bed; it might look messy, but I swear it’s a safe place to rest.

When you are old and grey and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep
- W.B. Yeats (via observando)

She had never imagined she had the power to make someone else so happy. And not a magical power, either—a purely human one.

Those are the voices of my brothers, darling; I love the company of wolves.

There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.

…There is good and reason in us, in human beings, with whom fortune plays, and we can be stronger than nature and fate, if only for a few hours. And we can draw close to one another in times of need, understand and love one another, and live to comfort each other. And sometimes, when the black depths are silent, we can do even more.
- Herman Hesse, Gertrude  (via wordsnquotes)

This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.
- Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via wordsnquotes)
