I’m in between right now. That means I am in a lull between past projects and ones yet to be revealed. This is a perfect opportunity for play which often leads to inspiration. One of my guilty pleasures is taking a selection of cast off junk and combining it into something artsy. It’s akin to child’s play- no expectations, just fun.
I’ve been eyeing an round, rusty old grill on an equally rusty burn barrel at the back fence line of my property. Last week I decided to see what I could do with it.
I was especially happy that I could incorporate the pieces of a favorite ceramic plate that I made years ago and then recently broke. Also included are some old springs, washers, a silver bracelet, a hawk feather, jute, a scrap of copper & a couple of glass moonstones for eyes. It’s now hanging on the outside of my studio. I call it ‘Grateful God.”
May the light of your soul guide you
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do, the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do
May you never become lost in bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert,
Approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected
May your soul calm console, and renew you.
