Morning verses and subtle curses…

IMG_2449.JPG

Such course discord these days……
No laborious conversation, I’m sorry seems wasn’t good enough.
Time……….s a little b followed by the big itch of life’s tragic drama..
These grains grow deep with roots in a time and place so lost and forgotten I almost forgot to tell you…..
Something…..forgetting..
It always feels like I’ve forgotten to tell you something….
Where is that child o’ mine?.. Lost in the wilderness of a new jungle, caught in a trap of words and wishes.???
I may never now….

** it’s hard to explain what it feels like to be in this body and mind. Often as if I’m watching me watching the world as I sit in silent awe and observation.

Back from the dead..

I think sometimes in life one has to completely step away and take a deep breath of fresh air. Over the past four days as you know I’ve been out of town and I think it was just what the doctor ordered. I had started this piece before leaving but couldn’t really see my way to its completion. Well I’m happy to say that feeling didn’t last long after getting home.

It’s great to be back in the studio and I’m looking forward to completing the red Coral piece and the new Circle piece as well.

As you all travel through your lives keep in mind to not be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and never give up. Don’t be afraid to ask for help I think you’d be surprised how many kind hearted people there are out there in the world.

Much love and light
