Wave of Stone.

Paper, scissors, glue-stick, ACTION!

Craft day @ Roomers, hand-made  books. I was reminded of Returning Home by Shitao (aka Wave of Stone), an album integrating the Three Perfections of the traditional Chinese scholar: poetry, calligraphy & painting.

The first poem reads:

As falling leaves descend with the wind,

I return by the water through the thinning mist;

I  see a tiny hut clinging to the bank of a green stream,

How soft and fat the clouds look in the cold air.

Shitao
