|Hand-lettered art by Lisa Congdon, from her 365 Days of Hand-Lettering. Some work included in her newest book, due April 1.|
In Facebook roaming a few days ago I found a statement from Azucar Magazine, "There is an awakening going on. You know that." At first I took it as a reference to the spiritual, then watched it widen to mean all matters of the spirit and heart and mind and hand. Yes, I do know that. I live it, the transformation of a discouraged art-class drop-out into a model of five-alarm besottment with what had always appealed to me.
Today I may practice writing "captivated" and "ensnared" and "infatuated," though I do believe it is beyond those. It is true love, misidentified too often before, this time here to stay.
