I have been changing things around recently, this after a couple months of experimenting and widening my outlook. I remain fascinated by the sense of my life being like a spiral, in a three dimension quality, and the coming around again to learning and challenges and ‘moment’ which are familiar/repeating and different this time around. Certainly beyond any idea that I have a choice as to whether or not I can choose the moment. That option is gone. Now is binary.
We have moved into the main house now, bringing the studio with us and enjoying a quality of indulgence and comfort with space and light. Surrounded by paintings, books, cloth and soft furnishing, there is a spaciousness and airy quality in our lives. We talk of a future with this in it. There is strongly the feeling of inside and outside, our lives here and our lives out there. We indulge in the retreat or the option to retreat.
Again my flirtation with Social Media, being FB, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest are come to an end or at best a pause and I write this in a vain perhaps acknowledgement to all friends who have connected over these months or years and to invite as always your ongoing interest if you should ever want to follow mine and Audrey’s progress as we come and go on this stage of walking shadows…
It feels like a challenge to forge a path to the creative, too much self censorship/undermining and resistance. This more strict and writerly format perhaps will define a new space and opening for connection and movement between self and other.
A slowing down, appreciating reflective space.
Where in the mundane can have my attention.
And the paradox my smile.
