Change is in the air

A good friend of mine recently sent me a poem called "The Invitation" by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

It's beautiful and inspiring. I've been rethinking how I meet the world lately, and this feels like one of the puzzle pieces, an articulation of more than an invitation, but a Constitution for my state of being.

I have also been exploring Nonviolent Communication and other methods and theories on how to communicate better, as this is central to my work and who I am as a person.

These are my offerings for this week instead of paintings. I've been busy scribbling and doodling in my sketchpad, exploring the shadows of my imagination as the days grow shorter. I need art for myself only right now, so that I may offer my art--renewed--to all of you in the coming days.

Again, I am most grateful to have you join me on this adventure. Along with the links above, I offer this quotation which went to the heart of me:

"To send light into the darkness of...[our] hearts--such is the duty of the artist." Robert A. Schumann

Invite Beauty,

I.
