the big questions about the world

$23.00

“I write stories I love to read myself. And I am profoundly enchanted by children and young readers, by their openness and curiosity, by their will to still ask the big questions about the world: where do we come from? What is this all about? Why is the world so beautiful and terrible at the same time? Children also still understand that we are just part of a huge web and connected to every plant and creature on this planet. They are still shape shifters and go easily into a story, whereas adults often hesitate to allow their imagination to give them feathers and wings.” — Cornelia Funke

• the chain came from a tangle of necklaces i got at a thrift store • paid two bucks, spent an hour untangling the stuff • worth it

• i traded soap for the green chip beads at an event in Nebraska like, ten years ago

• i found the seaglass along the banks of fountain creek in colordo while mudlarking • technically i suppose it’s creek glass

the steel wire came from the side of the road somewhere

• the bright blue beads were part of a trade with a friend • she got soap, i got beads

• i haven’t the faintest recollection where the pretty round green bead came from
