This in old page, posted again for Digital Whisper: ghost. Elements from Beth Rimmer, Marta van Eck, and Sherrie Drummond. The font is Sweetly Broken. The poem is mine: My dead lover’s lover will visit me today. She was one of a crowd, invisible to me, ghosts flitting through our rooms, a glimpse, a hairpin in the bed sheets, an alien scent in the hollow of his shoulder. Our pasts unspool behind us, already obsolete, films poorly edited, suffering from murky narratives, weak direction, too many bad actors, too much left on the cutting room floor. What does forgiveness cost?... Continue reading

HAPPINESS Made with Berna’s kit “Cape Cod” for Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s layout artist competition (Artistic Style.) The font is Achilles Italic. I copied a triangular template (by Christa) I’ve used before and added the circle as an additional geometric element; this turned out to be much more difficult to make than I expected. I’ve seen the “Happiness comes in waves” quote many times, but was unable to determine its original source. Continue reading
