Emily Carr: Forest Glade

“I sat staring, staring, staring – half lost,

learning a new language,

or rather the same language

in a different dialect.

So still were the big woods where I sat,

sound might not yet have been born.”

-Emily Carr

        I kind of lament the fact that I’m not very successful with the art of painting and such, but I try to make up for it in writing!

      2. And writing you accomplish exceedingly well, so all is not lost! My talent is appreciating what others do well, since I am neither an artist nor an author. But appreciating —- this I can do well. 😎
