VladtheBatA Hopeful Thing with Feathers for Vlad the Bat by Mo 2013

  1. Robyn says:

    It looks magical.

    • Mo Crow says:

      each of these hopeful things with feathers forms itself ’round this first verse of Hope by Emily Dickinson

      Hope is the thing with feathers
      That perches in the soul
      And sings the tune without the words
      And never stops at all

      and sends a bit more hope into the world, x fingers!

  2. Yes—magical and as mysterious as Vlad’s Cornucopia of “stuff”….the bat and the crow have a common thread.

    our birds here are feeling a little shortchanged!

    • Mo Crow says:

      ah but you have Cardinals and Blue Jays and Golden Orioles, the birds of my childhood… there is nothing quite as evocative as the red of a cardinal on a tree branch in the snow!!

  4. Carol says:

    True magic, Mo, and perfect for Vlad the Bat.

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks for the good words as always Carol & talking of magic are you going to share the things you made in the Keith LoBue workshop soon?

      • Carol says:

        Oh, I will! My memory is so shot to pieces that I’d forgotten to even say anything about Keith’s classes. I just posted (nothing creative) and now you’ve reminded me that I have several things to talk about.

    I need to write down this verse somewhere… each time I read it (on your blog), it speaks to my soul… The thing with feathers is gorgeous, Mo ! I know that the magpie in me will want to carry it everywhere but I think it will be safer in my studio, watching over me…Thank you so much 🙂
