Why does the caged bird sing? I once had that question lodged in my mind like an imperceptible splinter. The answer finally came to me, 'because she knows she has wings.'
Her's was a song of lament, of longing and hope, of calling to the winds to carry her from that place. This was during a long period of time spent in a spiritually abusive environment.
The growth of the flowers cannot be halted, the bird sits perched triumphant atop the cage and the passage of time moves on. These were some of the last roses from my London garden,
do you see the two little visitors who came in with them?

CARE & HANDLING
To maintain the quality and life of your print please take the following care -
The best suggestion is that you find a good framer to expertly handle your print for you.
It’s recommended you don’t handle your print until the framing or hanging process is ready.
Handle with either cotton gloves or clean dry hands, being careful to avoid touching the front of the image. Hold at the edges.
Your image may have a ‘raw’ edge appearance (think old book deckle edges). This is a natural occurrence in the cutting process of fine rag paper and will not
be visible once framed.
If framing or hanging the print yourself:
1. Handle with either cotton gloves or clean dry hands, being careful to avoid touching the front of the image. Hold at the edges.
2. Gently unroll larger prints and allow them to flatten in a safe place. We suggest you do not unroll until ready for hanging or framing.
- Find a clean, flat surface. Leave any tissue paper wrap on as you unfold. Touch as little as possible.
- Place one end slightly over a table edge and slowly uncurl away from you, being careful not to lean up against the table edge with your legs or hips.
- Once fully unrolled, place a large book (not too heavy) at the farthest end.
- Gently slide the table edge end up onto the table top and place another large book at that end also.
- Leave for 24 hours.

There is another method to unroll your poster but the above method is recommended for least risk of damage.
- Refer to point #1 when ready to hang or frame.
