Bleeding War

photoIf you like a graphic representation of what a war does, I don’t think you could find one more poetic or heart-breaking than this one.  My mother used to make artificial poppies when I was very small, she used red crepe paper and parafin wax.

I find myself wondering if I could remember/learn the technique and make the 8,200+ poppies I would need to commemorate US and Coalition dead in Iraq and Afghanistan before next Memorial Day.  I can’t get enough airplane size empty bottle ‘dead soldiers’ for the task.

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
