Double Take

Was I dreaming ....
did I really catch a glimpse of spring?
Or was it wash day wishing!
There's something in the air!

taking in all the beauty,
caring, sharing ....

Prayers for Japan ~ Ikebana

My communication today is tied in with 
this Poignant Ikebana image~ 


With kind permission from Kathryn,  
 I thought you might like to share our communication 
~


Comment to Kathryn ~

This post has arrested my attention:  This image would serve as a beautiful tribute for the recent disaster.   When I look at the image I see the global turmoil, the swirling of it all, in our minds too, and the helpless situation we all feel towards the Japanese. The beautiful flower offering is yours and ours to give showing our shared caring.  I have never studied Ikebana, but these images are very poignant today!
Kathryn - Collage Diva Yes, I learned of the tsunami after posting this arrangement and I was stunned. This arrangement as you have pointed out is a beautiful tribute to a culture that I admire so much. The water in this style of arrangement is very important. Hmmmm. Man must never forget how powerful nature is. We are visitors and stewards on this planet. Each ikebana arrangement tells the story of the circle of life. Each element: branch and flower speaks of our relationships. On a personal note, I have a budding friendship and there are many blossoms on this branch waiting to open in time. The yellow flower represents my golden center where my love pours through. This is my own personal reflection. Looking at it from a more global perspective, we can see how the metaphors can be applied. Each arrangement offers a beautiful object for reflection.

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your reaction to my flower arrangement. I look forward to working with the flowers each week and sharing this amazing practice with others.

Sailing into Joy

Sometimes we're feeling it,
sometimes we're not ...
Sometimes our boat
has slipped right into the
doldrums
without our knowing
or
even run aground!
No matter how we heave and push we're going nowhere,
we know we must wait,
wait for the moment.

For we know that just as we
slipped into the gloom,
we will effortlessly slip away,
 in a moment.

In the blinking of an eye
 winds will change direction,
the tide will turn
and
off we go sailing into
JOY

Journey to Self

Today I found myself wondering again
about my artistic expression,
this happens periodically.
When I was younger I thought
art was art
you either like to draw, paint, sculpt etc.
end of story!
NO
beginning of story for me
beginning of journey
beginning of ongoing enquiry
!!!
Although I have always been creative,
it used to remain mostly in the areas of 
design, technique.
I may have been subliminally conscious of something other,
something that separates it from the purely decorative,
but it hadn't dawned on me that
there was a difference!
That it was up to me to
discover what that difference was,
and why it mattered,
matters for me
!!!

Post Cards from Paradise #2

Grey upon Grey,
but then
from nowhere,
slipping in unannounced
Glory upon Glory!
'An Appearance' 
Streaming Sunlight
shining on my canvas wall
I had to paint ...
I became intoxicated!

Shedding Light on Art

fine focus needed,
ingenuity called for,
shedding light on art ....

Yes I needed as much light as possible,
my love came to the rescue ...
shining more light on these little babies
it's been awhile,
fine art yes,
but getting that thread through the
 'eye'
is like coaxing the 
proverbial 'camel' these days!
with the help of these two lovelies 
daughter & daughter in law to be,
we came up with these ~
they're going to be
name placement tags
for the wedding of my son
