Three new bigger bowls....the last one wasn't finished when I took this photo.  Bigger format, a much larger time commitment, a deeper conversation.  I was a little wary to begin, but soon realized it was worth the journey.

Leem Lubany - Peace Train

Image
Peace Train Cat Stevens Now I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun Oh, I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Some day it's going to come 'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again Now I've been smiling lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun Oh, peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on the peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on the peace train Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends too
'Cause it's getting nearer
It soon will be with you

SILENCE is difficult, an intimation of the end, the graveyard of fixed identities. Real silence puts any present understanding to shame; orphans us from certainty; leads us beyond the well known and accepted reality and confronts us with the unknown and previously unacceptable conversation about to break in upon our lives. Silence does not end skepticism but makes it irrelevant. Belief or unbelief or any previously rehearsed story meets the wind in the trees, the distant horn in the busy harbor, or the watching eye and listening ear of a puzzled loved one. In silence, essence speaks to us of essence itself and asks for a kind of unilateral disarmament, our own essential nature slowly emerging as the defended periphery atomizes and falls apart. As the busy edge dissolves we begin to join the conversation through the portal of a present unknowing, robust vulnerability, revealing in the way we listen, a different ear, a more perceptive eye, an imagination refusing to come too early to a…

SOLACEDAVID WHYTEFEBRUARY 26, 2016 SHARE The following essay is from Consolations, a new book by David Whyte. David is a poet, speaker, and teacher who brings profound insight to our understanding of the nature of individual and organizational change, particularly through his unique perspective on Conversational Leadership. David’s work remarkably creates a bridge between the worlds of psychology, philosophy, creativity, and vocation. Solaceis the art of asking the beautiful question, of ourselves, of our world or of one another, in fiercely difficult and un-beautiful moments. Solace is what we must look for when the mind cannot bear the pain, the loss or the suffering that eventually touches every life and every endeavor; when longing does not come to fruition in a form we can recognize, when people we know and love disappear, when hope must take a different form than the one we have shaped for it. Solace is the beautiful, imaginative home we make where disapp…

I hadn't really been listening to books for a while.  I got lazy, just listening to podcasts, but wanting something, just unmotivated to get to it.  Then, I started using this app HOOPLA
If you have a library card you might be able to connect to it and get all kinds of books, ebooks, movies, audible. FREE.   Of course the audible books were what I was immediately excited about....  My friend turned me onto it, and I started off with
Elena Ferrante a book my friend was listening to.... and now have listened to 3 of the 4 novels she wrote in the Neopolitan series.  Really Rich, interesting.  Disturbing.  Both.  It's got me thinking a lot. They are taking hold of me and taking me somewhere I didn't expect to go.  I started with this book:
Try it.... it took a minute to download,..

Anne Truitt on Resisting the Label “Artist” and the Difference Between Doing Art and Being an Artist “Artists have no choice but to express their lives.” BY MARIA POPOVAAt the age of fifty-three, the influential artistAnne Truitt (March 16, 1921–December 23, 2004) confronted the existential discomfort any creative person feels in facing a major retrospective of his or her work — the Corcoran Gallery of Art had just staged one of Truitt’s. A retrospective, she felt, forces upon the artist a finite definition — this is what your work is, this who you are. It attempts to make visible and static those invisible, ever-fluid forces that compel an artist to make art. To tease out her unease, Truitt set out to explore the dimensions of her personality and her creative impulse in a diary, in which she wrote diligently for a period of seven years. It was eventually published as Daybook: The Journal of an Artist (public library) — an extraordinary, soul-stretching collection of meditations on th…
