Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

If I didn't KNOW how beautifully you sew and crochet and make dolls, I'd say that paper art is your specialty. But the fact is, you do ALL of the above so well! This particular fatbook is PERFECT, Anita! I really WISH I had the gift you do for assembling something like this and making it turn out artistic and interesting! Mine generally turn out over-done and lacking the focus I hope to achieve. I always SAY this about your paper art, and each time I MEAN it - this is the best one yet!

You post such beautiful artwork. I'm a big fan... I was wondering if I might be able to use it for the base of some icons for livejournal. My icon community there is: http://community.livejournal.com/dewdroplets. Please let me know if you'd be okay with me using it. I will, of course, give you full credit and link to your website when posting them.

Sara

your icons are up at http://community.livejournal.com/dewdroplets, if you'd like to take them. they are credited and free for the taking :)
