Well I hope to do a few posts over party time, but this first one had me chewing my fingernails & meditating... bones... Bones.... BONES.... life, death, our indigenous Australians who can "point the bone" with deadly effect & how I have seen revered bones in churches, relics of saints, & last week came across a bush rat's skull in the garden... or maybe it was a possums(?)... my mind was churning & thinking that how incredible, the sum of all, maybe ends in a handful of bones, in a church, in a garden, used in magic, chewed on at dinner... I felt a little nostalgic... about things past.
It only seems like yesterday when I sat with my big sister & assorted toddler sibling enthralled by Bones...
I have a little give away too... leave a comment & I will randomly draw the winner of this little original painting below... all comments go in the draw over Magaly's party duration 1st-13th April, so if I post again & you leave another comment well you get a second chance... the painting below, it's done on recycled board & it's called 'Carnival of Bones' it was based on my first thought when Magaly announced her Blogoversary theme, a little girl, outside of the 'haunted house' at the Easter Show, a memory of long ago, that child is no more, but the bones still terrify her.
I actually want to share something else but that will have to wait as I am running late like an April Fool, and need to visit the other partiers, so drink up, you have rested your bones long enough ;)
One more thing, NATASHAAA (I am shouting so you hear me LOL & I probably won't get to visit until tomorrow as I have dinner to cook) BUT... You have won your choice of either of my 2 posted Oz creations from my last post & I want to thank you :) and ALL I yahooed with at Oma's Altered OZ party, I had the best time, but somehow, still remain in Oz... lucky me ;)
