This Week: Dollar Days are back with a special Under a Buck section!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


This is me:
From too much love of living,
From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
Whatever gods may be
That no man lives forever,
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
Winds somewhere safe to sea.

It was written by Swinburne, but it’s me. I can’t put a profile here because the last time I got hurt, and now just too chicken to try again. Shouldn’t write this here but it’s hard to be so much alone.

    Simply superb! Right into my favorites! The colors, the delicate shading, the motion & texture – oh yes!

  • noname commented on the Design “Spiral”   11 hours ago

    Anybody would be ready to believe that the wearer bought this as a souvenir of Greece on a trip there! Fine work!

  • noname commented on the Design “From a festival of wrap bracelets!”   11 hours, 5 minutes ago

    Fabulous! Each bracelet is a work of art! I find it hard to believe that these, which could very well be in a museum, were “easy” and “short attention span,” when they look as if you waited until just the right stones/beads came along, and assembled each, one careful, perfect bead at a time. I normally [...]

    OK, but only if I can sit on the hearth with the dogs = I smell ozone in the air.

    Suzanne by Leonard Cohen

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she’s half crazy
    But that’s why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you’ve always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind

    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said ”All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them”
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think you’ll maybe trust him
    For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind
