Value and Fulfillment
The Eye Searches
Prosperity sometimes comes in unusual packages.
Joe -- food specialist, wordsmith extraordinaire, egg painter, lover, and sometimes curmudgeon -- created this gorgeous curved body of bursting life and color and it gave me an idea. I'm going to dedicate my celebration of the Pisces New Moon to a new phase of creativity and friendship. A long one. So delicate and strong this egg is with a fertile yolk of a different kind.
"The sap is rising," he sagely says.
Chrispito created this painting entitled, Cardenden, and when I first looked at it, my body and mind were suddenly soothed by the understated elegance and beauty, something I long for in a hyped up crazy world. Nothing grabs, squeezes, or hurts in this picture, and it amazes me that artists can do this regardless of the personal suffering they feel and that all others share and identify with. The subdued emotion and complexity in the sky suggest an odd comfort. So Subtle. Pisces reminds me of both - the inevitable sorrow and the talent for transcendence. I could live forever with this image that softens the hard edges of everyday life and makes it so obviously worthwhile.
This woman is a master. Tseka's painting, November Lights, makes me feel emotions I can barely put into words. Something strong that stabs me with pleasure and some sort of nostalgic pain I can't recognize, but know I need. The light moves off the paper in a way that sends out shards of sensation and gives me goose bumps. There's solitude, stimulation, peace, sadness, joy, and something that simply makes me want to live and go to the next experience. Some strange anticipation. It moves. I can even almost smell the scent of the winter ice and woods and sense the lure of the unknown. I love this one. You can see the gallery with other surprises and make purchases at amazingly reasonable prices at Tseka One Dance. Still gotta give gifts.
I'm proud of my friends and proud of myself for finding these special ones. Talent is worth more than any king's diamond palace or any fool's gold.
