A Symphony of Paths by Guild Faculty Tamisha Tyler
Gravel cries out underfoot
a rhythmic percussion
it is beaten down with each step
but in its cry, I hear the heartbeat of God
it is the rhythm to which my life has been
in a 3 by 4 measure
so as to always keep me on my toes
I too find myself in the cry of this gravel
like the sound of the African Drum
Sending word of celebration
"Come," it says
"let us feast."

Forest Path by Mary McLeod, February 2020
Handmade Book with Calligraphy & Mixed Media, 5 1/4 X 4 1/4"
Much of my current work creating handmade books is repurposing materials. In this book, I saved a small box from the trash and repurposed it in the creation of this book. I chose a forest path quote by Paulo Coehlo:
In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.
