Rumi and an ATC


This is one of my most favorite ATCs that I have done. It is simply this woman's picture and the words are just cut out of an old paperback. Everything just fit together perfectly. I got the woman's picture at an antique shop. It was already tinted with color. Doesn't she look smart and funny? Like someone you would want to hang out with? That is the trouble with these old pictures...you want to know more about the people in them.

I wanted to post my favorite quote for you. I first read it in the beginning of one of the books by one of my most favorite authors, Elizabeth Berg. It is also reprinted in Alphabetica, the basis for the round robin art journal I am lucky enough to be in. Let me know what you think of it.........

"Out beyond ideas of Right Doing and Wrong Doing, there is a Field. I'll meet you there." - Rumi

Rumi was a 13th century poet.

Hello there Laura,
I just finished reading your whole blog and I just had to say that you seem like a real fun person. I too LOVE stamps...I am a Stamp fiend! I also love books and spending time at book stores (Barnes and Nobles mainly). I wish I had a friend like you who was into the same type of things. I can identify with having heart palpitations at the mere sight of stamps LOL. Well, hope you have a nice day!
