Road Hash- Art, Photograph and Memory

 

“The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.”
― Anne Lamott

 

Back in the meditative mountains. Thoughts of surrendering the parts of myself I have no control over (onto Nuit) to the universe and just getting on with it all. That too may have to be surrendered. Until then I have the beauty of some of the most amazing scenery and my family and yes lots of good books, snacks and magazines. I have no end of things to be grateful for both small and large and gratitude I have. Still I asked for this trip to be an internal one as well as external and it has been. I have been exploring my vulnerability this week and feeling it and that has been a good thing.
When it comes to any kind of development baby steps are not only ok, they may be essential.
We are already there and miles to go before I sleep are both true and the paradox is as beautiful as any mountain pass.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – December 21 2011

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.”
–Anne Lamott

When I started the quote of the day to accompany my art, I tried to find quotes that reflected something about the picture (or pictures) I was displaying. More and more often I have been finding quotes that reflect instead my mood or where my head is at, which may or may not have to do with my art.
Tonight I have been thinking about faith and grace. It’s amazing how often the two get confused. I used to believe it was faith and curiosity as far as what could happen next that kept me going. When in reality, it was grace.
I’ve travelled down some strange roads in my life and done many things that many (including myself) have found foolhardy and come through them all and learned from most of them. I have so much gratitude for the grace that I have been and continue to be shown.
Namaste,G
