Good Afternoon Sunshine!

Alexander

The sun is going down. Gee whiz! My day has been spent as far as daylight goes. I will just have to be my own sunshine! I found a poem about trees I wish to share. I love trees! I hope you enjoy this poem, from the poetry book. “Bare As The Trees” by Sue Saniel Elkind.

Childhood

When the trees are heavy

with leaves and the flowers have burst

from their buds,

when there is no hunger,

when a boy stands on the pitcher’s mound

taking trial throws,

when the ball floats over the heads

of other children higher

higher until it is one

with the horizon,

when summer ends too quickly

and winter last forever,

when suddenly there is a soft sigh

of green, and a bud spears

on the forsythia bush,

the same children don’t reappear___

their childhood lost

in the endless winter.

There will be other ball throwers

to start the summer,

more balls going skyward

until the sky will be full

of white on puffy white.

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
