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

Anita, you are hands down the most amazing paper artist I know! I love the way you just instinctively put all the RIGHT elements together to create a really wonderful piece! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

I love your Row Houses. So much work in them. They're all lovely.

k

Wow.
What is the swap? Does "row house" refer to the shape? How did you come to using the spirals? Is glitter cheating? Where do you get your pieces of paper? I buy and save interior decorating magazines, on the off chance I'll do this some day.
Do you think you struck a nerve with me?

Jeri

Oh My - I love these Anita!!!

Judy Merrill-Smith

Anita, you do have a knack with paper! These are really neat. I esp. love the man in the pot! (And K -- glitter is NOT cheating. It's just fun!)

Connie

Wonderful houses! They are all so different and done with great color and theme. I am so glad to be in this swap with you!
