How to Share: Buddhafully

 

 

 
Posted by Picasa

for a friend
you'd share anything.
for a friend,
you'd create ...
call & response.
how to be there
while being here.


when you don't know what to do,
do something. the right thing happens.


(Collage recipe: one of your paintings, some of your photographs, glue, wax, heat, apply...THEN, CUT INTO TWO TO SHARE, turn, look, send half off in the mail. which half did i send? the top photo shows the 2 parts put back together, with cut line)

the incredible lightness of rocks...

just delivered these "newly enraptured rocks" of mine to Folio Salon...
using more of my images/photographs/drawings, a large crystal, as well as 1850's period Japanese wood block papers (the hand/japanese lettering) ~~~~~
my friend noticed that these are so much lighter than the last group.
and they indeed are. these smooth greyish-white stones call for that, and i respond.

here's Pablo Neruda's homage to the crystal:

"Quartz opens its eyes in the snow
and grows spiky,
slipping on the white
into its own whiteness:
multiplying the mirrors
it poses in facets, at angles:
white sea urchin
from the depths,
it is son of the salt
that shoots up to heaven,
glacial orange blossom
of silence,
very principle of foam:

by virtue of the earth's pride
the clarity that awaits me."

changing perspective

"THE REAL VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY CONSISTS NOT OF SEEKING NEW LANDSCAPES BUT IN HAVING NEW EYES"
marcel proust

what changes can come through
retrospective perception
when viewing life, work


the continuum when we're privledged enough to be given time to turn our heads, our eyes, our hearts~~

(fyi: above~one of my paintings, turned from horizontal to vertical...)
