I am stuck.
My friend Gina and I are collaborating on a skirt. It’s a skirt with words all over it. Gina’s a calligrapher, so it is pretty. You can read all about hers on her blog. (Go there, really, it’s awesome) You can see it at the Textile Center right now too, coincidentally.
I saw hers. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I decided I needed to have one for all of the conference teaching I am doing this summer and needing to look artsy and awesome.
I have my colors all picked out, but I got to the words and froze. I don’t know what it should say. I have ideas, I have a feeling, I don’t have words. So I need quotes. PLEASE help! What’s your favorite quote?
Here are a couple I like:
A mind lively and at ease, can do with seeing nothing, and can see
nothing that does not answer. (jane austen)
i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands (ee cummings)
(That one is probably too long, maybe just the last 2 lines?)
