blighted by the line.jpg
Blight is not a subject I would generally pick. Since my quilts hang on the walls of the pain clinic I tend toward beautiful or whimsical subjects. But I know blight. I did grow up in the inner city, after all. Look closely at the detail shot though. The blight is not the graffiti on the wall, but that we have homeless people eating out of garbage cans. "blighted by the line" is something I actually saw written on a graffiti'd wall, so, follow the line and arrow and see someone, nearly invisible to the world, who is not blinded by the light.
