Sometimes no image can say what I need to say. To be truly heard and understood, sometimes we need the precision and the music of words. Sometimes we need the clarity of a word like agape. Sometimes we need the encompassing meaning of words like “I love you.”

I think that Joy in Shadows is going to work because I use both words and images. I want to try collage-based quilts based on words. Words like “hope,” “love,” “grief,” “solitude.” What a series that could be! Find colors that say the words. Find images that show the words. Designs that speak the words. If I find the right images and colors, do I need to say the words?
