I was at Society Hill Designs earlier this week to refresh the stock there, visit and look around myself. I always find something – usually a few somethings! – to fall in love with while I’m there. Here are a couple of pictures of some of the new pieces I dropped off.
For some reason I wanted a quote about birds on the bigger plate. I had William Blake on my mind that day but when I did a search on quotes, this one from Eubie Blake came up. It struck me as pretty fitting for my mood right then. I shortened it just a little for the piece – the full version is here.
“Be grateful for luck. Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds. And don’t hate nobody.”
Right now, I’m grateful for the chance to go on quite an exciting journey. Tomorrow I begin the day here in the DC area but will surface somewhere entirely different – first stop is Singapore, with a side trip to Malaysia and then back through Japan for a few days before coming home.
I started working on a few new pieces this week and am looking forward to getting back to them on when I return. But for now, just looking forward to the trip and finishing up the last minute packing involved with going somewhere new!
