Lately some deep thoughts have been surfacing, having to do with complicated issues…which led me to form these words:
Do you grow light,
or do you grow dark…
in the flicker of someone else’s happiness?
Choose to be a conduit of selfless love.
I recently created the piece below with the subject of love in mind. I guess this subject has been on my mind a lot, whether good or bad. Exploring this area so fully is new for me.
There is always hope…
…with love as an anchor.
I created the above piece using a fishing weight that I found during one of my beach outings many months ago. And I think that you already know that feathers (like the one I used above) are a regular find for me.
It’s pretty amazing to me how these symbols of hope (feathers) and love (my interpretation of the fishing weight) are everywhere…if we choose to be in the moment and really look.
BTW, the typed text that you see on the canvas is from a portion of a poem that I wrote years ago. Recently, after reading it over I decided that the words did not feel like a good fit anymore. So I tore away the excess, and was surprised to find that the remaining words still spoke to me. Isn’t it interesting how you can repurpose even a poem? Maybe we can reinvent or repurpose ourselves, by stripping away the parts we would like to leave behind, revealing an evolved self, a truer self…a better self.
