There is nothing proud
about the dark pain
Nothing is glorified in
the harshest of days
I don’t buy the myth that
I’m better when broken
However I’m sure that
not all should be spoken

Thank you for the gift of your presence.
Tell alls are never as satisfying, as a good mystery unsolved.
And often, one must just let the mystery be…

wonderful poetry…beautiful artwork…
So much thanks Boo. I’m gifted by your visits.
Your words are truth here. This drawing is amazingly active in its symbloic sense of silence. (that’s my reading). I love the form within the form and how she is seated and posed, like a kind of inner caretaker to the manifested. The drawing is just magic.
What a beautiful gift of a note you’ve left me ken. I’m very touched. Thank you…
I don’t know that myth of “better when broken” no one state is better than the other despite the premise that “good” is best, it is just not practical or real….one can live a very full life when broken…this I know :)
as always thought provoking and your artwork is truly sublime xxx
Oh, you said it so well.I had been having a discussion with another artist who felt like he was always ‘better’ when dysfunctional. I myself am broken – and have a very full life too. I have been trying not to create ‘pain’ – which probably needs more expanding on. That’s what I don’t want to court.
THANK YOU so much for your fine eye/heart/presence Lisa…You are indeed a Jewel!xo
damn straight!! most excellent. sheesh the placement of the figure seated within the face perched on the lips . . . perfect!!! gee whiz what a drawing here and that is one pithy poem. xx
LOVE your note. THANK YOU e!
