since my return i have had a need for more silence. i suppose in part due to all the energy expended in the job of delivering the tour and the need to re-gather energy and move forward.
this is something i did not calculate, as all things cannot be calculated or expected. i gave it my all, i planned, i gathered, i organized, i worried, and in the end found myself depleted which for me is a rather unusual feeling. and as a maker a bit unsettling. in the silence i can gather myself, re-adjust and tune in but life has a way of continually swirling around and silence has been a bit elusive.
in addition, i am questioning (once again) so many things. the road forward is not so clear, paths branching out at odd angles
none really offering any security or safe harbor but then again too much safety has never been my realm.
a quote by Jorge Luis Borges has been ringing in my head-
-don’t talk unless you can improve the silence.
and as of late, this has been my feeling. so for the moment i will share a few things that have kept me wondering…nature has a way of offering solace and beauty in silence.
the order of five
milkweed- a study of polygons
sometimes i think the moon takes hold of me and i overlook the stars…
-so just know that i am working on alignment of one sort or another and will be back again soon.
