After the rains, came the little creatures – krizillion wings and colour – blends that vary with the light. Photography and words are one dimensional stills of the real thing.
How much more is there to see differently – will one life time do ? If we walked together in the trees, would we see differently, thru’ each others’ lives ?
Would it re- arrange the way we buy our furniture and cut our trees ? Re- write our constituents, re – define our needs…
I think we should walk more often, together, among our histories.

look at you, I mean look at you –
Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin -uh Ludwig
and what a name,
what melodies and musical tantrum am thinking of just looking
at your name, and you all pretty in crochet, do you realise
how many layers of human print you rest on ? Every little tangle of thread
dated, kissed with needle and work that she put away,
one little moment at a time –
am blest just looking in on your life,
reflections of an Age of Unleashed Silence,
so much perfection, your species
( Thank you for this Pic Literary Lew and lovely Claire).
here there is need,
My sister Susie
courage against all odd
peace in a storm
days of ” NEVER MIND”

Postaday topic #210: What does love mean to you?.
Staring at his face, wrinkled against Time and his own defense against loving anyone too much,
yes I could not help staring at the absence of Love in my neighbours ancient crinkling eyes. He was content to exist.
Have you read Rabindranath Tagore‘s ” I won’t let you go?”
And am thinkn. How sad to never love, even if its such a volatile emotion. Even if we should miss one another, if the other dies. Even if the earth should fall away this noon, and one of us is missing.
“Dont love anyone too much,” my grandmother used to say. ” It will hurt when they leave..”
Grandma, you left, and I miss you with joy. I remember you with laughter.
Love is like that. The Truth of it : lingers, grows, takes the bitter with the other flavours. Never gives up, often gives in. Allows, holds, lets go, waits. Listens. Stays. Leaves. Forgets ill. Remembers the best.
Its what remains.

Nothing better than peace. Except the laughter of older happy people. Fulfilled Lives. Grandparents and little children. No sound of war. Just the quiet night here. Falling rain and the normal business of excitement of the morrow.

to read / at The Artist in You :” The very thing you lost..could bring you gain….
Have you ever done a CBBD (confirmed bad-biz-deal)? OK, if you are anything like me you have, at least once.
Shan’t go into details but this painting and two others (a series of three), created for a ‘friend’, were my first real water colour offerings to the world of ‘commissions’…
“Mindfields” went to their new owner, wrapped in butter paper and much love; they taught me to value the work of my hands. Never, never take for granted ..
So….here I am, taking inventory. There’s this growing grin inside. Wordless, nameless, images form; streams in the valley, a way in the wilderness…gaining through losing, cliches, everyone of them…piecing together what no loss can defy.
Dear sweet heavens. The very thing you lost could heave in returns? Awareness; Faith; Restoration; the knowledge of an unsinkable power within to create…?
