March Tif

This month's challenge - "Do you ever notice the little things, the small moments, the details in life? This months challenge is to do just that, pay attention to the tiny details. Sometimes the small things become emblematic for something larger. " Some first thoughts:

Small - defined as below the average in size or magnitude. Limited in importance or significance. But for me small can mean contained, controlled, compact ....... things which fit into this definition have an appeal for me, particularly boxes. Boxes can contain secrets! I've used small pieces in the past to represent secrets and I find I'm here again - this time interpreting them in text. So much text that it can't be read, or, enlarged so much that only a small proportion can be seen - thus losing the meaning.

Interesting idea. Secrets can also become emblematic of something larger too. Can hardly wait to see what you do with this.

Just had comment on this post because I'm working on a piece with text at the moment, and it was lovely to read about your thoughts on it. Thank you for sharing them. (aka the wittering rainbow - rebranded because of blog problems)
