fall

Q: Do I wish I could reverse time? 

A: No. 

Time is what happens to us, life changes, our friends change, our family changes, our planet changes, everything we know changes. This is what life is, a process of change, a movement, a dance, a song, a painting, a leaf that turns orange, a slow river that meanders into the distance, a candle that blows out on a birthday cake. 

and now a quote that I came across recently….

Because we don’t know when we will die 

We get to think of life as an independent inexhaustible world

Yet, everything only happens a certain amount of times 

And a very small amount really

How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon in your childhood

Some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being 

that you cannot even conceive of your life without it

How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? 

Perhaps 20

Yet it all seems limitless. 

-Paul Bowles

documents from fall that include both my art and some moments from a BC sojourn to see my elders. 

‘sacred place’ hälts hybrid art

in life there is death, I found this Robin in the yard and laid her to rest in a peaceful ceremony, honouring her life.

a fall scene

I want to be a cloud

just a beautiful tree on a sunny fall day

the garden continues to transforms

a grouse I befriended

my dad is a courageous man, he has lived a full life and without him I would not be here making art, photographing nature, writing blogs, and experiencing this beautiful life, thank you and happy birthday, job well done❤️

the journey

life’s journey flashes in minds eye
as the pigment hits the blank canvas
do I try to immortalize
a job that is forever
while time has it’s own story to tell.

As winter cycle swirls into place, a period of introspection kicks in.

Doing well

Whatever you are doing, keep doing it, do it well and from the heart, balanced with mind. Do it consciously, work at it, be sharp, courageous, get it out there, one word, one mark one frame at a time. Be true to yourself for when you are in Mahaloness there is no such thing as wasting time.
