Poets United Midweek Motif/ Design

Design

design is not what i say          but the how i say it              it requires planning

thought                                    and something to say          even something simple

finding a unique way to say    the moon is blue                  merry christmas

and all the other trivial things      that make up a day         i miss you

i love you                                thank you                            design is the carrier of meaning

in everything i do                    through design                    i organize what it is

i want to communicate            there are rules                     but rules are to be broken

finding a new way                    new materials                     new meaning

Exquisite! How you take the most profound things we say out of the ordinary, almost by saying the opposite. Magic.

You live in the midst of intricate design every day, always creating something new. Very cool. I so love the look of your wonderful studio, and the view of the desert out your windows.........

I love how you define the design : the way we say the words, the attitude, the heart in it.

Yes, there really is a lot of design involved in how one lives an average day.
