Good Morning Sunshine!

It was said Dragonflies sewed up your lips if you lied! LOL I remember eyeing the dragonflies pondering this. It caused me to doubt my parents and my aunt. I thought they were lying. I began to think about these things when I had my own kids. Such things backfire. A parent will wonder about the kids doubting them. I did. These things add up even if they feel innocent. I was mad a whole year about Santa Claus! LOL

Remember This Child

“Young girl? What do you know?”

“I am not sure what I am supposed to know, I am young!

Do you not have eyes and ears? What do you know?

Yes, I have eyes, and I have ears. I am not an adult.

Young Girl? What is it you hear? Do not tell me you don’t know___.

I told you, I do hear. I am not supposed to say what I hear.

Young lady? Then, what do you see? You do see, right?

Of course, I see. I am not supposed to say what I see! You know.

I know you hear and see. You say you, “I can not say!”

That is right! My mother said, I do not repeat what I hear.

Your Mother? Do you always do what she says?

She said I might see things, but it wasn’t my place to say___.

She told you not to tell, I see____, Is that not a burden?

But, we bear burdens! We do not say what we know.

Why is that? Can you not trust me? I won’t tell.

I can not tell. I am accountable for myself. My mother said so!

But you’re a child? How are you accountable?

I do not know everything but, I know what was said to me.

I was told the cost if I should say what I hear and see.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
