This month I have really tried to connect with nature and the planet and visualize it w-hole and healthy filled with peace and love.
The bird feeder my cause for paused
I watch Chickadees with their black caps, flit about the Lilac tree.
Sparking bright, shattering the darkness of winter gray, in song of a chick- a- dee- dee- dee- rhythm.
The Tiny Birds – explode in energy bursts- clear and renewed my mind.
As if the morning sun streaming through the mist of the mountain trees.
You can feel the fresh optimism swell – their flock- A community take turn eating, as excitement and enthusiasm detonate into flight, making wave like gestures, as they wax and wane- a current filled with lessons in being present, they never missing a beat- landing smoothly on their feet.
Their sound- loud in the rustle and swish of chatter.
Moments surrendered to stillness, drift calm, as I watch, in a spell that swells and reinvigorates this human heart, seeding peaceful possibilities to render healing deep in the soul.
I think to myself; these small creatures teach compassion to a world disjointed with strife.
Project- “Myth of the Chickadee”
Project – “Meditation of Bud”
This is something I have been working on over the month of March. I dwell in the silence of nature each day for 15 minutes after which I alter the same photograph to reflect what nature has impressed upon me and as a diary of the time. Meditation of Bud.
this is the March part to Project- “Fit of Carnality”
I’m sorry not to be able to show sculpture this month as I haven’t edited the photographs.
