All Coiled Up..."

is to be ever a child.

unless the memory of past events
is woven with those
of earlier times?"

You chose a great colour combination for this lovely design. Although I do wish I could start my days fresh without carrying all the past with me!

Before I read your narrative I thought "basket". Great job. I hope you do one in brown tones. My favorite. I am always amazed at your precision. Do you eyeball the quadrants or do you measure them out? Either way amazing.
