Hi. I came here from my dear and favorite blog, Dear Teacher Satan. How are you? Well, your different habits and jobs attracted my attention. This sense of artistic kook at work and life is brilliant. My Wife is also a bookbinder and I,m sure tonight if he understands that I've found one of his collegues in other country, she will scream loudly. So I,m sure that Ill bother you again and again. So forgive me in advance.
Take care

Burr Suki.. that is down right Freezing cold. I think we are having a heat wave at 45. lol
But it sure is pretty.
Thanks for comment on my blog. I think my new prisma colors are easier to use and richer in color then the cheaper brands and I do layer as much as I can but they do build up with a waxy layer. so you have to take off some and then add more. I am still learning how to work with them. But I am enjoying it so much. Have a great snowed in day. Be creative. ;)

oh..You may be slow at what you do but you do it from the heart. Artists that sell big end up selling prints and other things with their art on it because they can't produce that much alone either. Say like Kincade..I dont think he even paints all of his own paintings anymore. He has understudies.

Dear Suki, I am happy you liked the haiku by Bashu.
Unfortunately I cannot insert the address of my blog in your comment page. So I write it down here. I enjoy reading your posts and like the photos of your surroundings and artistic works. :)

Oh I wish we had that snow here in Paris, that would be fun:)
The sledge is more and more covered by snow. I love this sledge.
Have a good weekend
Andrea
P.S. Slow = Good
I read a great, really great book of a Germand author, title: "The Discovery of the Slowness" by Sten Nadolny here the link, if you're interested to the english explanation of the book:

thank you so much everyone for your comments.

Dear Anonymous. Thank you for coming to my blog! I am mostly a hobby bookbinder and I bind blank paged books for people to write or draw in. I am not really good at sewing so it is hard for me but I love it too. I will try to find your blog via your blog address soon. Thanks.

Hi Cris, yes I wouldn't midn 45 degrees. Today is even more snow and it is 12 degrees.

Hi Myla. I have read your poetic responses to human being's posts on her blog so am happy you came to my blog to say hello. Yes, I do love Basho and that poem was so apt. Will soon try to find your blog. thanks for the address.

andrea will check out that book site. I actually not too long ago read a book about slowness but not sure if it was this man's book. It reflected very much of my life's mode (I hate to say "style") but just the way I seem to be living my life. Slow. Yep. Blessings to all, Suki

I've come several times just to look at your beautiful photos of snow... they emit a sense of serenity and calmness... a sharp contrast to what I'm experiencing in the hectic life of a monster city like Tehran.

Thanks for giving me this joy by your art.
I also enjoyed reading your comment on Lynns blog about people having different facets that cannot be depicted in a blog dialog... so true and so impressive...
May you have a nice day full of the beauty of the snow and warmth of love ...

Inspired by your photos:


A bride has just passed by...

Through my window,
I see her gown
Trailing toward spring...

Dear human being in the big city. Yes it is peaceful here. You rarely hear even cars, though sometimes the snow plow. It is quiet here anyway but the snow muffles sounds even more.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem. You are so talented and understand metaphor so well. (I am not good with metaphors myself). The poem speaks of the white snow, the gown covering the earth till spring. A lovely way to think of the snow. I plan my next robe to be a wedding robe. Maybe I'll save the rose petals for that robe.

be well dear human being. And may you find a pocket of calm and quiet in the midst of the city hubub.

Suki. JUST read your comment on my blog about Tasha Tutor.. Wow that would be cool is she were near you. They used to allow tours.. what a coo that would be to see her place. I have followed her for years. Well her work that is. lol Yes she is in her 90ies. amazing woman.

Dearest Suki, thank you so much for the comment on my blog... I'm glad you like it ...
Iranians are keen on metaphors... It's good in poetry and spirituality ... but when it comes to real life situations, I like the straightforward frame of thought of western culture...and I am so in my life... That's why so many of my people do not like the way i live...just being myself...
Thank you very much for the good thoughts...
I'm waiting to see that robe...

Your blog as well as my other freinds' sure brings me those beautiful and calm moments I need.... also in Tehran you can find some spots to enjoy peace of mother nature, though they are becoming fewer and fewer....

human being. I found so interesting your comment on metaphors being so good for the poetic and spiritual side of a person but that you also acknowledge the straight forwardness of Western thought for real life.

Perhaps this ability to bridge the two modes of thought of both eastern and western cultures is what enables you to communicate with us westerners with such compassion and insight.

Brought up with Western thinking of course I am straight forward a lot of the time and sort of simple minded. On the other hand I love eastern thought, what I know of it through Buddhist philosophy. Once I started meditating and studying Buddhism on a small level and also doing yoga on a daily basis and small readings in Yogic philosophy, I then found for me a lot of practical wisdom for dealing with daily situations and emotions. A wisdom I missed via Western approaches. Pausing. Breathing. Letting go.

Thank you for sharing your ideas. Have a peaceful quiet moment.
