I visited a lot of wonderful blogs that participated in this event last year, and decided I would take part this year. Talk about a one stop giveaway bonanza: visit One World One Heart logo to find out more (the logo is also clickable).I am offering a collage painting for the giveaway: Invoking Clarity (10″ x 8″). In order to be eligible for the draw for this painting, you simply need to leave me a comment on this post. I will pick the winner on February 15th (by drawing a name), so leave your comment by midnight, February 14 (Valentine’s Day).
With the full power of the moon behind her, this woman invokes clarity. But clarity does not necessarily arrive quickly, in an easily discernible package, hovering just above our gaze before wrapping us in its bright tendrils. Rather, we piece all the various small revelations together, and begin to fathom a more spacious vision with each shining quilt, or painting, or poem that we complete.
Perhaps completion is not the direction we want to move towards, with its suggestion of closure.
What we really seek is a perpetual opening, a ceaseless unfolding, until we become so expansive that everything else is part of us, and we of it.
