We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic.
Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings,
different hopes, different dreams.
The wave of the future
is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed
but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.
-John F. Kennedy

Lucky me...I made a wonderful score yesterday and acquired some 60+ VINTAGE National Geographic magazines in excellent condition. I stayed up way too late thumbing through, scanning articles and pictures--oh my what fabulous pictures they have, too.
I'm having run-on idea's of things to do with these once I've read all I want--collage dreams, and how!
I'm a lucky girl...but my poor baby, Bella, has a sick tummy today, so it's a good day to lay around and calmly read from my magazine pile.
...just playing around with some rejected art I've cut into strips and had in the "bookmark" pile...these few sections caught my eye so I glued them to a separate piece of heavy watercolor paper...not sure what else I'm going to do with them...maybe an outline in gold or a coordinated neutral...sand? Any thoughts?
