    I’ve been thinking and think of OMC for days. How is he doing? Sometimes darkness is just what we need to hold us. Yours is beautiful. xo to you both.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Nancy))) Rod is feeling better every day, he is on light duties with the gardening & indoor plant hire & has his appetite back but is still getting a fair bit of pain with the stent which will be ongoing til the kidney stone is gone and the stent can be removed but it’s a lot better than it was a week ago!

  2. Unsure of the last word/ lid? hid?…otherwise dark enough to carry the weight. I look forward to Rods song and to his feeling better.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Michelle))) hmmm… maybe I should take it apart & embroider the words again on a fresh piece of the black suede but am hoping this different photo is clearer…
      the last line is meant to read “so I can see the light on the hill”

  3. Rene Walkin says:

    Just fabulous Mo! Wishing Rod a speedy recovery. xx

  4. christina says:

    Ah….that light on the hill….brings hope…Sending love to you both and all the very best to Rod for healing times and renewed strength.

  5. ravenandsparrow says:

    Dark, but not too dark. As it says…. dark enough to show the light. I’m glad Rod is moving towards the light.

      (((Margaret))) am looking forward to seeing this one framed, playing around with some ideas for several layers of black matt in a deep black box frame or maybe even something gothic with museum quality glass, keeping the dust off that black suede is a bugger!

  7. Carol says:

    ((((Mo)))) So good to hear Rod is improving, and taking it slowly. This new song will mean a lot to you both. Your image is wonderful, not too dark but to see the light on the hill you need some darkness. Healing thoughts to Rod and much love to both of you.

  8. Louise Watson says:

    Beautiful work, your black star and love to you both.

  9. grace says:

    dark determines its Self, we watch for that light

  10. Nancy Krampf says:

    wow this is wonderful. 🙂


  11. Hope he is recovering well. Best wishes.

  12. Marti says:

    Dark yes but it is enchanting because there is a shimmer, not just from the words or how the light shines on the center coiled part but because this shimmer of light is coming from healing and the quiet joy of knowing that Rod is feeling better and most of all, that he will be recording this in the near future…that is the best medicine of all!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Marti))) Old Man Crow was singing in the van on our way home from gardening yesterday, it’s such a beautiful song, the recording will happen soon!

    (is Man doing well ??? all the best !)

  14. tovke says:

    Mo, i think there are anxious moments and great relief worked in this oh so beautiful piece of work so beautiful and it must be a delight to see and hear Rods music at the same time. Rod going to the bar, enjoy his beer and sleep better….good sign no?
    Love to you and healing wishes for Rod….

    Dark times – light times .. all has it´s place in life. So good that all is going better. My best wishes to both of you.
