Empty bowl at Duluth Art Institute is April 15th and 16th, 2013
I AM THE EMPTY BOWL.
I WAS FULL OF DISCARDED STUFF. I WAS FULL OF ALL THAT WAS THROWN AT ME. I WAS A MAGNET AND I DREW IT ALL IN.. IT IS SO HEAVY, AND SO PILED ON. IT HAS NO MEANING OR PURPOSE.
NOW I AM EMPTY. I DISCARD EVERYTHING AND I BEGIN EMPTY. I BUILD A SHIELD SO THAT TRASH WILL NOT LAND IN ME. I BUILD A SCREEN THAT ALLOWS ONLY THE FINEST PARTICLES THROUGH. I REPLACE THE MAGNET SO AS TO ATTRACT ONLY THE FINEST ELEMENTS.. I AM NEW AND EMPTY AND PURE AND CLEAN. I WILL STAY THAT WAY A WHILE.
"This is a day that the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad."
Tthat just about sums up where I have come to in the past five years since my last post. it has been quite a journey and it continues. I again find my joy and peace in the creative process and the studio.. Now, however, it is mainly that and so much less about the marketplace, but more about the quality of my time, my moment my connection to the sacred world we have been given.
I invite you to join with me here as I document the days with gratitude.
I love playing in the mud and the trees. Snow covered land and stars sparkling above. I enjoy the plethora of diamonds that sparkle on the water and again on my snow filled hillsides. I can't decide if it's best to narrow my focus or mix it up. I have always struggled with duality. I enjoy skiing or a walk in the woods. I have an Aussie puppy and an aging Jack Russell. I love my Finnish Husband, Reijo, solitude, and God.
