Mad! Spiral

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
― C.S. Lewis

 For those of you just tuning in, Jessica and I have a weekly theme we do together.

I sincerely hope she made some of these, too.


 There are moments I wish for others so much that I end up failing them utterly.

I wish to help lift others up.  And I can't.  And I'm not meant to.  And I break things over and over.

And I must leave them with their pain and their desperation and their despondency, but still--I will hope.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

I like all the colors in this swirling twirling page.

Once upon a time there was a Spirograph set that somehow made its way into Daya's room.

Then no one saw it for a very long time, until it was rescued this morning and moved into an actual art studio.

The end.

Awww now I feel bad for not thinking about Spirographs, but you said SPIRAL and I thought DNA! Also, I am in pastel-land..... I thought DNA and pastels went well together...

You always were MUCH better at spirographing than I ever was.

You are so hard on yourself. Don't be.

Thanks, Lisa, I hope it's a happy association and not just dizzy. :D

Jessica, haha, at least I encouraged a rescue effort! :p I'm not so good; I just hide my miserable failures.

I'm not hard on myself; I'm hard on others, but I think there's nothing inherently wrong with either in the right perspective.
