Sometimes I feel the purpose of art/life is not really to create anything but rather to learn how to be still, become very quiet, to listen intently and only then, after integration, creatively reporting back.
It has become apparent that another vision quest is in order.
Another humbling experience to reveal further koans of my own infinite ignorance.
In the latest Labyrinth piece I have been working on it has also been working extensively on me.
As each rock moved is a form of meditation an undercurrent of subconscious actions/reactions have been exposed... exposed enough that I am aware of something and therefore going to take a couple days to vision quest, dig into the mire and allow the undertow to pull me out into the sea/see.
For all beings who I have, will and continue to encounter
Who I have inadvertently slighted and/or unconsciously reacted to in any way...
I am sorry
Please forgive me I love you
I see you I appreciate you.
On this evolutionary road I offer you sincere gratitude
With the best and worst of what I am
I only hope to have served you
