Could someone please help me translate these phrases? I'm learning Japanese but I don't think I know enough to translate most of this properly.

"Down the well"
"A river inside her bones"
"She is going to take me there"
"Lead me by my hand"
"Life is not long"
"Songs playing in my head"

Any help will be appreciated Smiley

There are free online translation pages you can use to get those phrases - babel fish is a good one... although by now you may not need the translations anymore...

Doesn't BabelFish stink with translations?

I'm curious to know, do those phrases have anything to do with The Ring?

You're half right! The words are bits of lyrics from "Down the Well" by the Pixies. It's for a constantly continuing art project of mine. This particular page has a Ring theme. The song has some eerie connections to the Ring Cheesy

That's what I thought about THe Ring. I didn't know it had anything to do with The Pixies. Did you post any of that project on Craftster? I'd like to see it, especially the one with The Ring.

I have a lot of pages done already, but I've sort of gotten side tracked with other things. I usually have this frenzy when I'll do half a dozen pages and then have this lull. I want to make the whole thing into a book (like a picture book) when I'm finally finished, but that may take a while Grin

Sounds cool! Is the project a series of pictures based on songs, or are there words that go along with the pictures?

It's a little bit of both. Sometimes I try to capture the general feelings of the songs, or use my own interpretations of what they are about and other times I just directly use the lyrics.
