Quote Me - Lao-tzu

To see things in the seed, that is genius.
~Lao-tzu

I've always been in awe of seed beaders.
The fact that they have the patience to work with those teeny-tiny beads... and come up with an object of absolute beauty...
Truly genius!


We all have a bit of genius in us though.
A seed is planted.
Germinates (usually in the middle of the night!).
And a design springs forth from the fertile valleys of our brains.


What plants the seed for you?
How do you keep your 'soil' healthy?
And what do you do to nurture your seed?

The patience of saints I think is required to work with those little beads! I'd be all thumbs!

Beautiful works!
