Final section finally done!

1 Comment

Here are the last section pages from that mini-album.  Love how it turned out.

In three sections:


You can see it’s quite a chubby book but still contained.










Ooh, check out that curly perm and Deirdre glasses!


Only the cover left to do and I am dithering about what to do with it.  I know I want a couple of fat eyelets and a tie to hold it closed but not sure what photos (if any) to use.  Not going to rush the decision but will add a shot when I am done.

Two final bits of info – first, the entire essay Children are Like Kites:

Children Are Like Kites

You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground.
You run with them until you are both breathless.
They crash. They hit the rooftop.
You patch and comfort, adjust and teach.
You watch them lifted by the wind and assure them that
someday, they will fly.
Finally, they are airborne;
They need more string and you keep letting it out;
But with each twist of the ball of twine,
There is a sadness that goes with joy.
The kite becomes more distant and you know it won’t be long before that
beautiful creature will snap the lifeline that binds you two together and
will soar, free and alone.
Only then do you know that you did your job


and second, that tee-shirt.   If you live in the UK and watch TV, you may find you “know” Ugly Duckling – the song, Just a Little Samba was used in the Visa/Usain Bolt advert.  You can watch the video on YouTube.
