Jelly Roll Blues Written by Mike Ross Jelly Roll Sign “Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world.” Cesare Pavese Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Signs 40.040025 -76.262175 Lancaster, PA, USA Related 19 thoughts on “Jelly Roll Blues” I’m wondering if that’s a soft voluptuous stomach or something you eat.. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I thought it must be the biggest jelly roll in the world at that price but a tourist from Texas schooled me. These Jelly Rolls are bundles of colorful fabric used to make quilts, a huge thing in Lancaster especially with the Amish. LikeLike Reply My word..

But I think on the whole it’s strange that I chose visual art, in fact I payed a little attention to visual. But when I studied drawing once I came out of classes and I was really very happy of seeing things that I was observing. I felt like I saw everything and everything was interesting and beautiful. And then I thanked God that I’m able to see. Such a thing happened for me several times, but that time it was the strongest positive experience which I got in the life I think.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply First I had to educate myself on Jellyrollism and Quiltification. Turns out neither is as interesting as driving around guzzling coffee, chain smoking and occasionally taking pictures. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m with you…not my cup of tea.
