52Q: 16

the best thing about emily falconbridge's 52Q art journaling project is that she asks questions i would never think of on my own. the worst thing about emily falconbridge's 52Q art journaling project is that she asks questions i would never think of on my own. this was one of the latter. i thought and i thought and I THOUGHT about this question. i still don't have an answer. i finally decided that not having an answer *WAS* my answer. (pretty tricky, eh?! wish i'd've thought of THAT ONE back in my 10th grade sociology class. i'm pretty sure i would've gotten an A+!!!)

question 16: what is the truth?
(materials on front: vintage game sheet, anahata katkin clipart, jenni bowlin rub-on letters, colorbox ink; on reverse: making memories journaling card, cavallini bird's nest stamp, manual typewriter)

text reads, "i have been--off & on--thinking about this for a SOLID WEEK...and still...i've got *NOTHING*! my mother, and a lot of other people, would say, "jesus" (or buddha...or mohammed...) with perfect certainty. and in some ways i envy that, but i don't feel it, and i cannot fake it. maybe someday it will bother me enough to go and seek out my own "capital T truth"...but for now i feel ok about sticking with lower case."


  1. oooo that is a deep one Missus L. I shall ponder this.

  2. Love it...have a fab Thursday ♥sista♥!!!

  3. I think not having an answer IS an answer. Totally with you on that one. I live by the motto that "I don't know" is a valid response, and it has taken me far in life.

  4. Love, love, love this! I, too, have been pondering this one (all those philosophy classes have messed with my head!) and I think you came up with the perfect answer! Now I really need to go find my Q list and get to work, or I'm going to be so far behind I'll still be doing this project next year :)

  5. Whoa, this is DEEP girly! I love your honest and real answer though and that's the TRUTH! Also, it looks pretty dang fab too!

    I am officially asking your permission (or maybe later on "forgiveness"): I want to copy your Caardvarks Reader Weekend logo thingy, okay?

  8. I'm the kind of guy who enjoys to try brand-new things. Currently I'm fabricating my personal photovoltaic panels. I'm managing it all alone without the assistance of my staff. I am utilizing the net as the only path to acheive that. I stumbled upon a very awesome site that explains how to contruct solar panels and so on. The site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

    I am not exactly sure about how precise the info given there is. If some guys over here who had xp with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it would be great and I'd really appreciate it, cauze I really would love to try [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].

    Thanks for reading this. You people are the best.
