The first one vanished without trace, and this one required a few juggles to reach jpeg, unusually.
I think Artrage isn't so sure of my new Leopard as it was of my old Tiger. Those felines are Mac things, for my unMac visitors. I believe there are still a few.
Anyways. Workarounds. Years of doings lead to ohI'msureIcanfiguresomething, which is a comforting place to have reached. That, and having a techywizard pal for backup when I run out of ideas.
Caroline Myss tonight was talking about reaching Higher Potential, and the phrases that stayed with me are:
praying for patience in the cocoon
I will be a witness to your presence here on Earth, and you will be mine.
Tonight's pic is, (as was the first one, which none of us can be witness to now), sparked by a pic in my new Hans Coper book.
The book is having a strange effect on me. I don't recall ever feeling almost sick with Beauty, previously. Honestly, I can only look through the book for short blasts. The swooning is very nearly physical.
Tonight's session of focussing on one pic was the longest I managed yet. Maybe I've developed some stamina that will let me endure longer exposure. I'll get to scanning some pics and posting, when I can.
There is something so deeply gutsy-pure about the things Mr Coper made. I've read that he wrote that he was concerned with "extracting essence" from pottery. Even pics of his pots cast some kind of essence extraction spell on me.
It's very mysterious to me that suddenly these objects are feeding me as they are. Mysterious and rich.
And it transpires that many of them live in a gallery of which I may become a neighbour, if my cocoon-discernings are onbeam. It all hangs together so intricately, in the delicate choreography.
O I just recalled another thing CM said. It was about doing things before we know the why of it, like the kid in Karate Kid being put to washing a car. A Soul with Stamina, in development, following directions.
I was happy to hear that, as I put together a new stick weaving frame that had called me to be bought and worked with. I know not what I do just yet, but I trust the resonance of the call, and act as accordingly as I can muster.
I want to point to another new-to-me artist, whose work is also touching me strongly at the moment.
I google-imaged "new shrine", and got to see exactly the quality I was looking for, and a whole bunch more, in her work. The 20 min vid about her work there is an essence-moving view, too.
