As much as I have written lately about NOT speaking, I will be posting some visual images that I love. I could try to write more, and maybe I will, but let's have something that is non-wordy for a change.
STRIPES!!!!!!!!! Just posting these makes me very very very very very happy!!!!!!!!!!
I once indexed The Devil's Cloth: A History of Stripes and Striped Fabric, by Michael Pastoreau. Whilst indexing this (indexing being lining up all the information... plus a LOT MORE and no, a computer can NOT do it!), I was very happy, and went around saying "Stripes!" at odd moments, which made my mother laugh, because she thought I was being very entertaining. A search on the title yields two different (striped!) covers:
STRIPE SERIES I: Striped Clothing with Joyful Happiness!
And finally, STRIPE SERIES IIIII! A Lovely Striped Card from My Child
A card my child made for me a year or so ago, with things that he thought I would love, so hearts, and XOXOXOXO and lots of 111111s lined up!
