I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    Gee…this is so beautiful … eyes leading us to the little you, and your “whistle while you work” wall painting… [ am not saying it right ] : too much emotion. Intensely good!

  • aw thank you margot. I love that you saw my wall painting here – it is actually a photograph of a shadow on a wall of iron lace! That you saw that, gives me wonderful ideas….for something new! This just sort of flew together late at night (when I really should have been sleeping,) and I was feeling emotional. Interestingly, making this had me bawling. Not something I tend to do much. :))

    Another very artistic SP, Lou. Really love how you as adult appear to be looking at you as a child. Warms my heart.

  • Thank you Deborah. This fell together in one of those just zoned in states. Like doodling. Sometimes it is when one gets in that state that something more happens! I so appreciate your comments!
