This quote from Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie has been resonating with me....
"Who what am I? My answer: I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me. I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I've gone which would not have happened if I had not come..."
There is an unshakeable sense in me of a connection with everything....that is, everything we experience is connected. Past, present and future are inextricably linked and there is a rippling flow of energy that moves out from each of us intersecting with the flow of others. If, for a moment, you think you don't matter, you must know that each of us changes the world day by day.....in ways we cannot know or imagine. Life really is a dance and without our brief time on the stage, the music and the dance would be otherwise.
This week a new piece from the Celadon Suite, along with a meditation drawing and another little item, not shown here, have all been added to MissourBendStudio. I've just posted another week's worth of dailies over at MissouriBendMusings, including my favorite from the week below.
I hope your creative spirit is flourishing! I'm not saying that mine is on fire, but it's a quest....a constant striving to stay true and to make the work that I must make. Many things get in the way....mostly my own shadow, but there are moments when I know I'm connecting to something very real....I think you probably know those moments too. They provide a fresh glimmer of recognition and lift you out of the ordinary....fine moments those are!
Hope your week is wonderful!
