I had fun doing this one. The letters are still pretty rough looking, but I kinda like it. I stamped out the letters, then I uploaded the image from Dropbox (my new best friend) into Gimp, my free Photoshop lookalike software and messed with it a bit to make it look like fabric. I wanted paper with musical notes as the background but I wasn’t about to drive into town ( a 30 minute drive) to make that happen, so I worked with what I had.
I love this part of the chapter (you can read the whole chapter, along with my essay, here). Music without silence would be deafening and life without the quiet spaces in between things would be equally unlivable. We flash on and off, awake and asleep, happy and sad, kind and mean. This is human.
