Ball Of Wool - 23

This picture has come along at just the right time in my life..I've experienced the tangled logic and emotions that the central theme of the picture represents.

Here's something to ponder: to make gem stones, you put 'rough stones' into a tumbler, then add grit...they tumble and turn for days on end..the grit and the stones bash, grind,grate upon each other.the end result:..a gem stone..precious and beautiful. I think that is very true of life ..there is pain, we get bits knocked off..we go through the tumbler...in the dark.

I hope to emerge like a shining bright stone of beauty....

PS. the progress on the picture you see today represents 7 hours of solid work since yesterdays post.
