Some of us, maybe you have a constant campfire in your heart. The woods, landscape, and nature speak to you of God’s prowess just as much as any holy book. This is creation’s words, the laws of physics that are the poetry of God.
Children are amazing if you have progeny of your own you know the feeling. A life that changes so fast before your very eyes. A life that has energy and vigor. A dragon of a life that your heart is tied all up in. Taming such a thing is myth.
Rust grows it covers metal as time and oxygen combine of the surface of an object. The best metals only get a patina. Marriage is like that time and life causes a patina to grow. Hair grays, the story progresses and a true commitment gets deeper. Two people as the patina the crystalline structure of their rust intertwine and they are forever stuck together. Stuck in the best ways.
This is it the place that I think sometimes we touch but don’t very often. That point no matter where you are, no matter what boring grind or terrible situation you find yourself in; your eyes are opened and you see the indelible mark of the infinite on the finite and see just how we are all connected by a common narrative. Also who doesn’t like a haiku?
Creativity tends to come when sadness and depression are present. We see that in so many different artists. We experience the fruits of such realities and the suicides that crush our perceptions. However, we are made to worship something. Man will worship! We find the depth of our depravity when we worship each other in our own filth and failures. I choose to have creativity be exalting and uplifting bathing in the light and truth.
Toothpaste! I came across this little beauty after my children had gone off to school. At first I was perturbed but then I thought… At least I have children to bless me with such problems. So remember to behold the light; The Way, The Truth and The Light. There needs to be a frame of mind change. One that looks towards the truth and not just what bothers us.
Been thinking a lot about how fostering has caused me to see more and more of myself. When you deal with trauma from outside forces you have to deal with any baggage you might be carrying. You also have to deal with any baggage that you might be taking on. Also a quick shout out to A Softer World for being inspiring and pushing my art forward.
