Good Morning Sunshine!

“Truth is always in us. There is nothing new under the sun. All we have to do is learn how to handle what we are already are____” Ruth Given Jacques

A phoenix rises from the ashes time and time again.

A phoenix rises from the ashes, again and again, and again___.

She is reborn from her experiences, no matter what they were.

I admire that ability, it makes a good model. No matter how awkward.

The phoenix know she will, and can find a rebirth, it is a part of her.

There is something to be learned, some thing to know___.

It what ever, “it” is___ will be a useful tool for survival.

Knowing that there is good and bad to all things, is knowing itself.

That we can not control many things that happen.

These things will cause great hurt___unbearable pain.

Yet we live on and endure. When there are no answers?

There is the self that can be a safe zone, a comfort.

The hard part is feeling the feelings. Finding the reasons?

We can only know what people are willing to give up.

Otherwise, we need to find a way to go up and beyond it all.

We must not let our own inner flame be blown out.

No one has that right; to make less of who you are.

Be sure of what love is, trust, respect, and belief in.

Others do not know the meaning of these things.

Nor will the show it. It is a cruel thing, there are no excuses.

No good reason to cause hurt, harm to another.

A person who harms others is making less of themselves.

I did nothing wrong, I saw my role to love and to expect love.

I had to save myself, so I could be all I could be.

I can rise up an soar. I can feel the feelings, and still, be ok.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ 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
