Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

Never-ending........or stagnant?

This Never-ending Book from a class with Albie Smith could be considered to be somewhat mislabeled.

True, it can be never ending. Pages can be added forever making a long, serpentine book.

However, if one quits adding pages, it is done. 

It will stay as it is, the same, stagnant. 

Nice to look at, perhaps, but no longer changing, growing.....a death of sorts.

Pleasant enough, but still, left alone,  and getting dusty.

Life is like that.  Change, grow.....or slowly die.

Thank goodness for art and art retreats!! Keep on going and growing, guys!
