Sunday! All-day long! A day of rest, relaxation, and fun? May this be true for all of you! For me? A day to catch up on some things. And a day to read or listen to books. Do a bit of cooking, I am thinking muffins. Fill the dishwasher, throw laundry in. Let them do the work. I have put meditation music on to soothe and mellow my soul. The coffee is already gone. And I have touched base with family and friends.
Today’s cards? “The highest state you have ever experienced is simply the result of how open you were. If you don’t close, it can be like that all the time.” #2. “Fortunately, deep within us, there is a direct connection to the Devine.” I turn more towards feeling this connection the older I get. The more I send good intentions out to the whole world. I recognize I am a part of something much bigger.
I am still rattling around the May Sarton poem, Lady With A Falcon. I find myself bringing more into it, having read her books, and I understanding what it is to write poetry; drawing upon one’s own experiences.
Though analyzing a poem means interpretation therefore bringing into the process what you have gleaned elsewhere such as books and bios.
I loved her book Kinds Of Love. The familiarity of knowing such a life, and the kinds of people she writes of. It paid off to be the observer. I think people who love to write are natural observers. I love finding rich relationships. And I love building them.
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
