A friend who truly listens and nurtures our true self is like an angel. People are social beings. We need respites...alone time, yet we need others to trust. In order to emerge as the sun does dependably each day, friends help us along in life. True friends may change in many ways over the years and yet, their heart will always be there for you.
Elation, the sculpture piece has been affected by comments of all who have posted on this blog, as well as, emails I have received. I appreciate all ideas and posts, email and information shared with me. I have learned so much from others. Thank you!
I wish the sculpture Elation to invite others to come into a world where the darkness is lessened. The music will be joyous. The material of wood will be soothing. I do believe life is bearable and even beautiful, even though so much seems unbearable. That is the vision.
We need to dream and create so that reality becomes more malleable and we don't just accept the status quo or what we think exists permanently. As my dear, great Uncle Al told me to remember.
