Feathered~ Weeks Fifteen through Twenty

Feathered, Weeks Fifteen Through Twenty

I am feeling like we are hitting our stride with this project.  At first it was an idea, maybe we could make our way through the year, one feather image at a time. Then panic set in, how can we each take an image a week, and include a feather in the image, without it becoming stale, or cliched?  Panic, falter, then I believe we both saw the edge, and the possibilities, and have started to really explore this concept.  I believe we have hit our stride.  

I hate to even say it, afraid to jinx ourselves...  but the dream, which started as just the simple idea of one feather image a week, has turned into something bigger.  Now I have stretched this dream to maybe (hopefully, because I am allowed to dream big right??) now the dream includes a book of the final project, which we would sell and give some of the proceeds to Lyme and Autism research...  and maybe, maybe maybe, I would LOVE to see some of our favorite images hanging in a gallery, a Feathered Show.  I am dreaming big, but I feel like I can see them printed, and framed and hanging all together in a gallery.  I do think it would be powerful!

Dream big!  And maybe, from a simple idea, things will happen...

The Once-ler: Uh, down? 
The Lorax: A tree falls the way it leans. Be careful which way you lean.”

A feather from the Whipporwill
That everlasting - Sings!
Whose galleries - are Sunrise -
Whose Oprea - the Springs -
Whoes Emerald Nest the Ages spin
Of mellow - murmuring thread - 
Whoes Beryl Egg, what schoolboys hunt
In "recess" - Overheard!
~Emily Dickinson

“If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colours suspended in the darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape, and the colours become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
