the little "sassy" bunny



The bunny is really a manifestation of the second grade teacher gene, so silly at times. I'd created my great EXPERIMENTAL piece, yet another, on 18"x24", trying out my different "toys"=watercolors, acrylics, oil sticks, collaging in some of my photo and poems..rolled it up as a bundle to hang from a tree or the fence, and it leaped out of my hands and onto the bunny, anticipating easter? i don't know. but 7 year olds would appreciate it!! and add to it!!

NO LONGER PRIVATE

OPENINGS CONNECTING

No longer private.

This is an opening
that will allow threads
of connections ...
connecting ideas that may only rattle in my head,
or they may reach out to a friend.

Openings allow "traffic" (breezes, voices, lightness)
in both directions~~~shared energy propelling or
calming. the goings and comings of vital forces.

My friends feed to me so many ways to see and
be in the world .....often detecting things about me
much more clearly than i'm able.

So many gifts come to me this way !!
perhaps the gifts i gave out daily, hopefully,
to the children in my classrooms not so long ago.
i'm in the world-learning-theatre now,
going to the "specials" of life by choice...
workshops, classes...art/gym/book groups.

taking risks, playing with purpose as means
and ways evolve to create~~~~just for the
pleasure of that.

and discovering the deeply hidden joy of
smearing paints!
