Spread #55 – Weighing & Wading & Waiting… June 9, 2009

Posted by Orly in Spreads.

Spread 55- Weighing & Wading & waiting

I love these words by Walt Whitman:

“Long have you timidly waded holding a plank by the shore,
now I will you to be a bold swimmer,
to jump off into the midst of the sea,
rise again,
nod to me,
And laughingly dash with your hair.”

That pulchritudinous plateau of pages you presented me with this past year presented this playful prose perfectly, placed as a preeminate present to prompt me to the process of putting pencil to paper and proclaiming my permanence upon the planet, as well as preventing me from putting too profuse or prevelent priority, piety or power upon my ponderable presence.
Props paesana – peace out!

Beautiful piece Orly and the words….I want to shout this to my daughter, even though I am THRILLED that she is here with us…wanting her to spread her wings and fly.

Inspiring words and spread.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned how enjoyable it is to comment over here — like I’m journaling on your pre-painted pages.

How fun!
