Qui parle?

“Dans un atelier, c’est le moment qui parle, & non l’Artiste.”

(In a studio, it’s the moment that speaks, and not the artist)

Found: Prospectus: Encylopédie, from my French class.


To make and to give.

“By making quilts and giving them away- it’s like almost giving away part of yourself, because you’re putting a lot of your energy and creative thoughts into it. I think it really fits into our whole culture…You can’t compare it to going to the store and buying a gift and giving it to somebody else. The quilts sometimes might take you two or three years of your time, time that you really don’t have, but you make that time, because you love that person and you want to make something special for him.” –Lydia Whirlwind Soldier (Sioux), 1993.

Found:  To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions through my Textiles of the Americas class. These are just the words to describe how I feel when I make something for someone as a gift.

C’est la vie.

“Attack life, it’s going to kill you anyways”

Found: Women’s bathroom stall on the first floor of College Library.


“Like the tiger indigenous to Sumatra, this coffee is big, bold, unpredictable and utterly captivating”

Found: Starbucks Sumatra coffee bag. Who knew coffee could be so exciting?

Impression Le Reveillon

Impression Le Reveillon

by Oscar Wilde

The sky is laced with fitul red

The circling mists and shadows flee

The dawn is rising from the sea

Like a white lady from her bed

And jagged broken arrows fall

Athwart the feathers of the night

And a long wave of yellow light

Breaks silently on tower and hall,

And spreading wide across the wold

Wakes into flight some fluttering bird,

And all the chestnut tops are stirred,

And all the branches streaked with gold.


Found: Online I think. I love the imagery.
