Somewhere Over the Rainbow…..
In this work I started with the vision of a Grass Widow, patiently waiting for her husband to return but somewhere along the line, it came to represent those of us who take a backseat to life.
Fear keeps us rooted in our comfort zones even though we are tired and bored in our surroundings.
We’re afraid if we chase the rainbow the sky will crumble, open up and bad things happen ….so we sit back and watch life play out like a movie on a big screen..
What happens when the movie comes to the end of the reel…are we left with a room full of regrets?
if you are interested in the etymology of a Grass widow see Professor Anatoly Liberman
