As usual, you've done a fabulous job.  I need to think about something like this for my library.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Thank you all for such wonderful comments! This was for sure a learning project since it was my first time doing this kind of lettering. And using a new grinder. I will for sure be doing more lettering now. Smiley
