Your voice is given for you to share.
I awake today with a calm sense of pride. I love the idea of connecting with others through my voice on as many levels as possible.
I guess that is what its all about. Connecting. I could see myself as alone in my room but I feel full of the vision of all those who pass through my awareness.
How do I want people to experience me? As a blissful pool of moonlight set on a mountaintop lagoon. A place that is enriching at the end of a long journey.
The journey is as much the reward as getting to the location itself. Wandering is how and when we open ourselves up to the mystery. Its important to enjoy the sensation of opening. To revel in it.
That is what I love about painting. It is a journey into mystery as I never know what something is going to look like until I see it done. The final piece feels done when it resonates with a peaceful balance. Until that point each step is a process of pulling my vision out of the ether and adding it to the chaos of the white blank canvas.
The work of creation is for me one of balancing chaos and transforming it into beauty.
