Batik 1Here’s the first post
of another new series that I’m calling Batik.
It’s taken a lifetime to let myself go and see what happens.
It’s also taken as long to understand that creativity is an everlasting
process; even when we’re dormant, think we’re doing nothing,
our creativity is busy processing.

Just

JustWhen I saw this from above at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan
last week, I didn’t know quite what to make of it, but somehow
it absorbed me. Perhaps its warmth spoke to my longing
for the sun on a winter day; perhaps its symmetry
symbolized justice in our unjust world.
Whatever the reason, I decided to
stop thinking and just enjoy…

“We are alone, absolutely alone on this chance planet;
amid all the forms of life that surround us,
not one, excepting the dog, has made
an alliance with us.”
Maurice Maeterlinck
