This world of words/Wednesday Stamper


I dedicate this little piece to my beloved son Sasha and all kids who cannot talk.
Sasha will be six next year, and he is not talking.
When Sasha is "tuned", he understands a lot, but there are times when I feel that words go through him like sounds which don't make sense. He is surrounded by words, that are more like a cacophony. He tries to express himself, but words that make perfect sense in his mind, come out as sounds that nobody else can understand. This world of words is very frustrating and confusing.

I thought that the scratchy white Sandylion paper was perfect for stamping the main image. Stamps used: Technique Tuesday and PaperArtsy.
And the word HOPE is essential here, as there is always hope, and we should not give up.

Galina
I know exactly how you feel, my son didn't talk until he was 5 and it was a very emotional/fustrating/sensitive and sometimes isolated time - Hope is a great word to believe in and no you mustn't give up.... beautiful piece made even more so by the reason behind it. Hugs Galina xx

I have come across this card only now in 2011 as I've just discovered your blog. I think we should all talk less and LISTEN more. I think Sasha could be our precious teacher showing us that there's much more than words...
