Some days the winds wrap us up so tight we become the eye of the tornado. Trapped inside, the world collapses on itself and there is no gust we can grasp. The storm picks us up and ponders what it will do while we uselessly fight, kick and scream against the assault and injustice. Then we let go of trying to rein the wind. The chaos unwinds. The winds unfold and beautifully reveal unexpected surprises.
What gives me strength when I am weak? Courage when I’m scared? Confidence when I’m uncertain? Heart, humor and spirit written gently on each finger. Because floating in an unknowable sea is just a lovely, bumpy, mysterious dream.
A direct gaze distorts the truth as if it’s made of sand. To see differently expectations, photographs, mirrors, assumptions, categories, must be set aside. She emerged blind-sideways from the experiment and unwrapped a thousand other possible “me”s. Unpolished, but a strong catalyst and inspiration guiding me towards new artistic adventure and identity.
The first painting I proudly framed and hung on my living room wall, after I put the paint from photographs away.
Opposites are not linear, but circular. At the extreme of one sits its opposite, always in contact with one another in a dance, not isolation. If the opposite of love is fear then the opposite of suffering is inspiration. A garden personifies inspiration. It is creation, beauty, growth where once stood loss, suffering and death while carefully and lovingly tended. You could not have one without the other.
