Infinity

InfinityHello All!
It’s been awhile since I
have posted.  Too tell the truth,
I’ve just been enjoying the summer too much.
But here’s an image that I printed yesterday for
an art fair I will be in tomorrow .  And I want
to share its infinite joy…

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…

amid all the forms of life that surround us,
not one, excepting the dog, has made

Invincible

“In the midst of winter, I finally learned that
there was in me an invincible summer.”

Blue

Blue

The biggest challenge of living on the East End of Long Island is warding off the blues
this time of year. When I’m asked what it’s like here in the winter, I say it’s
quiet and only for those who can create their own  amusement.
After a succession of grey days, I searched my
archives for this very blue January sky
to entertain my imagination
and yes, to keep smiling.

Patterns

Patterns
As the new year starts, we’ve been programmed to make resolutions
for how we plan to change our spots in the coming year.
It’s been my experience that they rarely work.
Instead I like to take stock of the areas
where I made progress in the
past year, then settle on
a few intentions:
old patterns
I’d like
to break,
or new ones
I’d like to initiate.
This gives me more latitude,
more room to rearrange those spots
rather than expect them to change completely.
