Sometimes JOY takes you by surprise…

with unexpected gifts and delightful reliefs lifting you from the weight to the skies…

Flying higher, soaring freely, lifting deeper the burdens which once pinned you to land…

I never expected to fly, only stand.

Exhibit A. Winged

Model. Mai

Process. I cut flying bird shapes from card stock, pinned the stencil onto black felt and out cut out birds of various sizes.  Some I pinned to the wall; some I sewed on a white dress.

The process…

And up close and personal…

It’s nice to know there are wings stronger than I;

It’s nice to leave earth for the sky.  For a time.

…Knowing well I can’t grasp, only fly.
