I think my muse has returned! (Knocking on wood right now.) For months now, I would fulfill my obligation to create my skinny book pages each month, but that was it. When finished, I would leave my studio not to return until the next month — well, almost. This time it was different. I wanted to jump right into another creation, and here it is.
Birds! Are you surprised? There is a cryptic message here. The numbers 40-6-26 are a code to something that has a special, spiritual meaning for me. Can you figure it out?
Also, just a word about the fragment of a hymn behind the birds. The hymn is "The Rock that Is Higher than I" (text by Erastus Johnson,1826-1909), and I found it flipping through one of my old hymnals. The words that caught my eye are "O then to the Rock let me fly, to the Rock that is higher than I." Every day of my life I am glad I have a refuge to turn to, a source of comfort and strength much higher than my mortal being.
Now I am anxious to jump into another creation. I can scarcely believe it.
