Artist's Description

These mail boxes line the street where I live. They have been in my neighborhood for about half a century and show the rust and wear and tear with images on all sides. The more distressed they become, the more unusual and beautiful they appear to me. Aging is part of the life cycle. We must learn to embrace both youth and the passage of time. There are many messages in this box. Sometimes the mail is troubling to receive;we tend to resist seeing our dark side. But we must learn to embrace both the beauty and the beast within our nature. Both good and bad must go into our learning crucible, so that we learn not only how to manifest our gifts, but also hot to tame and rein in and tickle our beasts. Everything that’s present to us is a learning tool. The contents of our “mailbox”, the messages we receive open our way to new insight about ourselves. Sometimes the messages are troubling to receive;we tend to resist seeing our dark side. But we must learn to embrace the beauty and the beast within our nature. As it says in the I Ching, the ancient Chinese book of wisdom, the event is not important, but the response the the event is everything. Our response to events can turn tutted and rusty paths into a great adventure filled with wonder, awe curiosity, discovery and exploration. Everything that is presented to us is a learning tool. Open the mailbox and read the messages. In a quiet place, when the chatter stops, we can receive the messages that guide us on our own true life’s path. And we can surf through the gateway to the soul, to become who we are meant to be.
