ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

People all over the world

The author of the following review (which was posted at reservebooks.com) is originally from Rwanda, now living in Norway. . .

In this House, Written jointly By Angela Cartwright & Sarah Fishburn

Inside This House Cover

This fascinating book, based on a deep artistic inspirational on different issues, but focusing mainly on altered art imagery and collage techniques. It gives good feeling and a priceless pride of having an own home, because “ a house is a nest for dreaming, a shelter for imagining”-Gaston Bachelard- and home sweet home indeed.

In our daily life, as human beings, no doubts that we like best things. But there is nothing best like to stay in whatever we do all day long then spend the rest of our day in resting and relaxing time like evenings, romantic mornings, togetherness with relatives and friends, playing with pets, praying etc…

The book “In this house” reveals the importance of having house and nostalgia of our lovely rooms as our refuge cages, and the walls of our house’s rooms as our inspiring table or lamenting walls where we posting all our ideas when we feel like doing so.

A room in house is like half-heaven normally. But a decorated room with some nice words to remember like “approach the dewy world as the messenger,…Still your desires and be little fragment of what the universe is wanting to utter”, is like a room on sky, far from earthquakes and far from any destructive agents.

Some postings with worlds of wisdom like “let our curiosity keep up our spirit. Life is an unending adventure. No artist has any other aim than show his soul by his work, etc”,remain in our mind during our stay or the rest of our journey on this planet.

As we live in large and broader range of diversity, we have different perceptions about our homes, but we all like a well –artistically- corrected room to inspire our dreams in the night, all “In this house” then!
