People are not aware of their abstract emotions,
which are a big part of their lives,
except when they listen to music
or look at art.

Agnes Martin

A woman made utility quilts as fast as she could 
so that her familly wouldn't freeze, and
she made them as beautiful as she could 
so that her heart wouldn't break.

both quotes from my current journal
glad to be walking on my road again, the ice has gone.

I love how you think Judy! what an interesting concept, music & art as "abstract emotion"... I will have to take this quote away and mull it over for awhile... it's almost an oxymoron as the cool celestial heights of abstract thought feel almost opposite to the fiery passion of emotion...

Glad you can walk your road again, and glad for Agnes Martin's sensitivity and for the woman who made beautiful quilts so her heart wouldn't break

Hands and heart at odds
Practical or beautiful?
Hoping to wed both
