Embala

Guess you know what follows - October grab-bag brought a new poem by Redhead - and this time nothing grew Unhappy Sure, there were pictures evoked by the poem but they didn't join themselves together as I was used to.

This collage is the first one I had to construct - taking a piece of paper, making a sketch (sorry, artists, it doesn't deserve this name), planning the position for the different bits and pieces. When the collage was finished it contains all the elements as they were planned - but it felt somehow ... dissatisfying - artificial. I still saw the single pictures instead of the whole.

It took me a third and forth and fifth and ...th look the following days to realize how perfect the circle was - well succeeded!
