I am not going to be distracted from the task at hand by writing a long post. Lucky for you lot! But here is the second Monday vignette of composed mindfulness (for want of a more succinct description) for the year. They won’t all feature my ladies but, like last week’s, this one does. She stands in front of a beautiful glass plate by Sheryl Glassmith , one of the TARTS (Textile and Arts Collective) of Rundle Mall, Adelaide and the scene is completed by two fabulous resin clouds that I love. Her shield is made from a discarded jug doily I picked up at the tip and she was my first figure in many years. I wrote about her here. The tip shop has closed (I hope this is a temporary measure) so this scene mindfully acknowledges the contribution of Broken Hill’s tip to past creations. And I love these blue and coral colours and she seems serene. And I do think she is listening rather nicely which reminds me of my word this year.
