Case Sensitive - from Marie Wintzer, Japan.

I know this is not strictly a Heart Matter, but thin skin IS a matter of the heart. And I'm with Marie here - living with Rhino's for real - the people AND the animal kind - MAN it can be bitter!!

Shredded skin, thats what happens in sensitive cases - so why cant people just treat as "Fragile Handle with Care" more often?   The note from Marie reads " A case sensitive boekie for you, inspired by your notes for the book binding course and the triangle books" - and the rest I'm not writing its private! I had sent Marie the notes I hand out at the course - of COURSE she made the best triangle book I've seen so far :-)

Its innovative, exciting (a closed book for sure) and conceptual all in one small format. The triangle book is an origami fold book, usually in - yes, you guessed, a triangle shape.  Marie sewed two triangles onto a rectangular cover - ALWAYS out the box is Cherry Blossom! And the sensitive case - its hyper-sensitive :-). Its the Ether you see - its a strange place which never closes. Its a meeting convolution.   Its a hiding place too.  We've never had a case like this one. A Sensitive case. Inside the folds, secret message lie, waiting to be unearthed.  And in Ether Convolutions, NOTHING is easy. Robin Hood hhhmmm... Amazing transference conceptually of ideas into format Marie. Also - saying so much with so few words - a strong message for sure.

Hiding in the Ether. Hiding at the Case Centre.  But the arrows still show the way. This Case is Never Closed.

Cherry Blossom has gone to visit Kafka. We shall see how that changes her work.

The shredder is my new friend. Very therapeutic.

Hi L-MF. Yes, my partner in asemic writing, Cheryl - friendzy seems to be a perpetual state - I'm learning to adjust :)

I like that word DVS - FRIENDZY. My IUOMA friends put me in a friendzy often.

Actually, the folds and edge stitchery expresses a "everything-under-control" state of friend-zy to me ;-)

'Gotta go find my triangles....(back home in the hot city)

A lot of shredding, tearing, and frayed edges. String - all wound up, strung out, hanging on by a thread. You can't say no strings attached. Marie is so subtle - I think this expresses a fairly frantic state?
