3 years later

this piece has been patiently waiting
for 3 years

yes... i didn't have a clue what to do with it for that long
i coveted it. keeping in my creative spaces
places where i would paint, sketch, or hammer
holding it. turning it in my hands. wondering.

sometimes i personify objects
imagining they have feelings
i used to do this with my toys as a child
feeling guilty for spending more time with one than another

if this piece contained feelings, i think it would feel at home
these pieces of ribbon, metal, and enamel strike a harmony
as if they exist to be with one another

i am eased with its completion
a long time in the making
but well worth the wait !

do you have any projects on standby?
what's keeping you from them?
