stars inside her


i'm workin' on a bone sigh journal right now.
something to offer for bone sigh arts.
and i asked noah to do the cover.....

so of course, we have to have a title.......

i used to have a book called 'the stars inside her.'
that was years and years ago. it was a handmade book.

the title came from a story of a woman who lost her
daughter and the daughter loved stars. she was the
reason i put the book together in the first place,
and the title was in her daughter's honor.

years and years later,
when we started doin' the printed books, everything
changed, and we lost that title....

when it came time to title the journal, nothing
seemed more fitting than 'stars inside her.'

especially now with all this star talk i do.

noah and i talked about the cover....tough one to
do....unless you're noah!

he came down last nite and said he wasn't sure about
what he was getting and would i come give input.
of course!
i walked up to his computer and was speechless.
i just sat and stared. i couldn't believe what he
had done. even tho i knew the plan, i couldn't believe
it when i saw it.

now....he's not done. and he keeps telling me that.
but i don't care. i wanted to share anyway......
this will change a bit......there's the title and that
kinda thing......and colors are subject to change....
but who cares........
you need to see this.

i am posting it because i don't think i can post
any words to express what i feel like this picture
does.

i wanted to remind everyone today that there are
stars inside you......and i wanted to remind me
of that too.....

I agree with Po. What more can be added?

Since being sick, I've lost track of the days. But since I come to your blog first every day I've been reassured that the earth has not moved too fast or slow.
Yesterday was Joshday, today was Noahday, so tomorrow must be Zakday!

What creative and sensitive sons you've raised. Bravo!
