Two things happened the day I started these journal pages. The first was that the song As Time Goes By began playing on some weird sort of interior loop in my head, so much so that it became the theme for what I was making. The second was that my 18 year old cat Schrodinger, who had been with me since she was just a few weeks old, died of heart failure, and these pages took on a whole new signifigance for me.
So the little envelope contains a tag with scented wax from the candles I am burning in my studio dripped onto it (thanks for that idea Michelle!) and stamped with the date. Tucked into the page pocket is a little print of a painting I did of Schrodi several years ago. I also got to play with my new toy: a set of letter punches which I used to stamp the metal shim with a line from the song.
