Words Are A Heavy Thing...for IF




This IF contribution is again my WIP for 'Organic Backgrounds' class. This class has been such a pleasure and I highly recommend this kind of artistic exploration via the web. Really it's like taking a class at your local community centre (for the same $$ if not less) and it is soo much fun.

This week's IF theme 'Heavy' has been fun and the perfect answer for the words/quotation I was looking for my WIP. IF has been such a pleasure since I tried it a number of weeks ago (for the first time) even more so this week, as it led me to find this rather elusive quote from some/the writers of Northern Exposure in 1992....it seems rather stunning to me now that was 16 years ago!
"Words are a heavy thing, they weigh you down...if birds talked, they couldn't fly."
Sy Rosen and Christian Williams, Northern Exposure, On Your Own, 1992

It's been awhile since I've had time to look around. This piece and your others are just lovely. I love your win of the Sea Side trinket.

Totally captivating and I LOVE the words you chose -- PERFECT!

I'm still envying you taking this class with Paulette and it's so popular I think any she does in future are going to be hard to get into!
