Autumn Blessings

Artist's Description

I Am

I am multi-faceted and curious.
I wonder why so many people want to be treated so badly if we were all raised to treat others how we want to be treated?
I hear thawing dreams.
I see a brighter tomorrow.
I want to be reborn from my own ashes every day.
I am multi-faceted and curious.

I pretend to fly with the hawks in the distance.
I feel like dancing to the heartbeat of the World.
I touch the sky of my own soul.
I worry that I am not silent often enough.
I cry for the blindness and stubborness of Humanity.
I am multi-faceted and curious.

I understand that you cannot help someone who does not believe there is a problem.
I say Live well, Laugh often and Love much.
I dream of Raven singing me wisdom.
I try to take a little time each day to simply Be.
I hope for a brighter tomorrow.
I am multi-faceted and curious

Quinn Blackburn 2007

Autumn is a time of reflection for me. As the Trees begin their dance towards Winter slumber, revealing the brilliant gems they have hidden all summer long… I always find myself pondering events past and curious about what may be just around the corner. I’ll find myself rambling around the neighborhood, taking in all the subtle changes…

Sometimes, a bit of Beauty will shine too brightly for me to pass it by without pausing to touch and admire. After such moments, it is almost a shock to become aware again of all the people bustling by, caught up in their busy lives. And each time, I wonder… How can they hurry by and not even notice all this Beauty? This bit of Autumn gold passed through my hands last year, but the bright memory will be with me always. How fortunate are we happy few who cannot hurry past a moment of such Beauty without some gesture of gratitude or reaping of inspiration? As the accompanying poem suggests… I am many things, and all of them grateful.

wishing you laughter
