Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue.

The Simplicity of Letters

The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity. ~Walt Whitman

In between sorting through all my art supplies, I have been mucking around with my blog format. It's not quite right, but it is getting there.

Meanwhile, I don't have much news to share. I do want to mention how much I adore comments. I love them on facebook, I love the replies to my tweets, and I am honored to have had three wonderful internet friends comment on my first blog post, here!

Isn't it interesting how important a few well written words can be? Even one quick note can completely lift a person's day. Speaking of well written words - Walt Whitman (above) certainly knows how to make a point. In eighteen words he sums it up. Sometimes what you are trying to get across doesn't have to be encased in a lengthy soliloquy. In fact, sometimes the beauty of a message is made even more so by the very simplicity of the words themselves.

"Have some virtual Liquid Nails from me and glue, glue, glue girl!" - Laurie

"Love you sweetie!!" - SueAnn

"Hugs to you Chel!" - Sherra

I have one word to share with all of you:

And keep the comments coming, I love to hear from friends - old and new.

Here's to hoping that every word that comes your way today is good!
