Some Words

Some words just get in your heart and in your head and surprise you.

"When the layers subside
and the fortune is empty

the pigment of our days
will echo pure

and I will be nowhere

if not with you."

I love when good words intersect with beautiful objects; the relationship between the written aesthetic and the physical aesthetic is something I feel keenly.  When I'm looking back at bookmarks and pins, I love finding something that didn't just move me at one moment, but got to my heart again when I came across it.  The words are by Kylie Johnson, a poet and potter, and the tray is for sale at anthropologie.  If I owned it, it would hang on the wall.

Sorry this post is so late in the day--you probably won't see it until tomorrow.  My husband took the day off of studying and we spent it having fun, mostly away from the computer.

I fell in love with Kylie's work at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Fran last December. Her pieces just haunt you in that really wonderful way.
