Song of the Senses


I think each of us has but one heart, one soul, and one truth. An inner light that can melt the snow and warm the night.



A fire to discover in the golden lights of the sun. And dreams that speak our gentle words in the noisy thoroughfares of our world.



In the pale white day hear the splendor of silence. In the luminous moonlight sing the song of the senses.

The first time...

the last time...

And evermore.

I would like to buy that immediatly, but I don't know how to transfer the money from Germany. I have no credit card. I think it's very expensive to remit money into oversea countries.
But it's beautiful.

It appears to be hinged, Seth. How are the pages held together? Beautiful by the way.

I wrote about the power of sunshine today but you works and words are so much more effective. You inspire me to process ...stop ...think...envision the possibilities. I will carry your vision in my heart for now. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen

Love when you weave your incredible poetic talent with your artistic works to touch all of our senses! Another moving reflective piece through the rustic amber tones, rich layers of texture within a book style to play a wonderful song for our senses! My favorite thought it leaves me with is the concept of speaking through the noisy thoroughfare of our world. Love it!

You're making me feel like a delinquent not being in my studio right now. Shame on you.

Debrina said...

Kia ora (Maori for hello). Thanks for cruising on by and saying hi and letting me know that I have "texture"! Your little parcel I sent you shouldn't be too far away now. It basically slept in my giganticenormous handbag until I remembered I had to post it! So it was sent last week.

Like the new work. Nice....

I'm very sorry, Seth, but if you've sold this, you're just going to have to make an exact replica.

Thank you.
