Separation

The prompt word chosen by Fiona this week over at inchybyinch is 'separation'.  I have to admit I was a bit stumped by this one (despite the family assisting with eggs separating, divorce and, from Grant, something about chemicals blah blah blah that I confess I stopped listening to - much like in my chemistry lessons 100 years ago!).  So I Googled it and came up with this:

Separation secures manifest friendship

This is an Indian Proverb - I suppose it is a different version of 'absence makes the heart grows fonder.'

The American wartime gal-pals (from digitalcollagesheets.com) are on a handwritten letter (you can just about see it).

Jo I think a LOT of women will hope they are only six feet away from Colin Firth! sigh...

( he's just so Lovely isn't he ?- I have a thing for Hugh Bonville too & the actor who played Jolyeon in the remake Forsythe saga ) I was obviously born in the wrong era - those men are all from the same mould !

This art reminds me somehow of Maise Dobbs. Have you ever read that book by Jacqueline Winspear? I think you might love it. I do love your art.

Actually, speaking of your creativity, I am hosting a blog swap that I think you might like. It ends tomorrow and I thought it might be something you would enjoy since it has a component of including one thing you made yourself. I just wanted to invite you personally. Of course, I totally understand if that's not something you're interested in doing. Just wanted to let you know that I'd be thrilled if you would consider joining us. I hope the end of your week is marvelous.
