A large A4 envelope was tossed on the stairs yesterday,

but I retrieved it to safety and discovered delicate beauty inside, as only Marie Wintzer can create!

"A Circle" No.3 of 6...soft, large pages of leaf-pressed rice paper pulp makes a special boekie!

Poetically enhanced images with Marie's words:

"Say, it is better now. It is better now that the circle is full.

Is it better now the circle is empty. Is it better now the circle is closed.

Is it better now the circle is broken.

Is it better now there is no circle.

There is no circle anymore.

There is."

Haiku of the Bubble Tangerine

"Soapy burst, no sound

No flare as my lungs shout out

Swim upstream for air"

"Urbi et orbit - Eclipse this vicious circle - 

let it gravitate around distant equators -

let it revolve towards necessary stars- 

let it rule on unlikely solar systems - 

King of its own slopes, gardener to its own theater "

"Time forks perpetually toward innumerable futures.

In one of them I was your friend.

In one of them I never saw you again.

In one of them History took care of it.

In one of them loops brought me back to the start.

In one of them you could read the circles of my mind.

In one of them they were all red.

In one of them my steps left no trail.

In one of them you found it anyway.

In one of them the beginning met its end

and they lived happily ever after."

The details enchanting:

The textures divine:

A beautiful masterpiece! Thank you so much, Marie! xxx

Ecstatic, yes that was the word I said when I opened mine after getting back to PAirs.  I thought to blog mine, but I simply could not do a better job than Katerina.

     A Wonderful blog for a wonderful piece ... I plan to sell mine at the flea market next week!

I was ecstatic to receive my very own of these-it is like holding antique lace as it is rich and delicate. Thank you Marie!

Oofy-doofy, but that's a great piece.  ...AND POETRY!

Love the ancient Arabic and hermetic astonomical diagrams set against the hand-made paper with samples of the biological flora of the planet (This is our universe; this is the planet of which we speak of in this solar system; this is the beauty that can be found there...)
