“There is a beautiful stillness breathing here,
Its mellow richness on the clustered trees …“—Longfellow.
My new friend Heather sings a song that make my spine tingle. I don't know why it's such a powerful song to me, but everytime I hear this particular song it causes the most lovely images to swirl up into my mind.
So I created an ATC inspired by her song "Beautiful Stillness" and I think there's more to come. Maybe it's the way I used to get lost in my own fantasy creations out in the woods as a child. Maybe it's because I most closely relate to nature and fairies and whimsical cloaks and medieval stories. I don't know. But it's an awesome song and I want to thank her for the inspiration.
It's mostly the chorus that runs through my head all day:
"I will sit beneath the trees
'til kudzu grows, over me
poison ivy circling round my head
an initiation crown"
