“Evening Dance At Owl Pond”
10″x20″ Acrylic on Cotton
Balance is perpetually in a state of search and discovery and finding itself. It occurs for a nano-second, then lives into its awareness of being in balance. This is always a hold-back to the moment before.
“Evening Dance At Owl Pond” is a composition of asymmetry in its immediacy, yet the figures/beings balance one another with their territory.
Thus, you and I can balance one another in our daily living.
And, we emphatically must balance ourselves with our territory, precious Earth.
The Eclipse of 2017 lives on and on. I was sandwiched between Heaven & Earth as I laid on Earth and held hands with my friend and had a little cry.

At first, I went into the studio work intending a statement of alignment with the cosmic order.
As I worked this piece, I found my information was becoming more internal than external.
Exploration revealed that one can align externally, then the solid ‘work’ is to bring the Nature Spirits into my energetic; then the Poise is cultivated with spiritual information called Power.
For me, that Power is calm expansion.
The quest is to align internally, whatever that means to me or to you, is a moment-to-moment livingness.
Our regional forecast for the ECLIPSE was sunny/cloudy. I drove to my Eclipse gathering and saw many, many, many little clans squatted out in the dog park, on the community college campus grounds, in their private yards, and I sang out with thrill!
Some traditions prescribe staying inside, feel the internal work in the dark, do your personal and communal alignment. As I felt into my reality of going “out” to a gathering, and saw people coming out of their offices and dwellings, I honored them.
We are a visual society. We want to see. And people, in their EXPECTANCY and CELEBRATION of the natural order of this unique phenomenon sought participation.
I think that EXPECTANCY IN JOY AND CELEBRATION MOVES WORLDS! We moved the skies into clarity and non-overcast. We unconsciously did “something” together because of AWE and CURIOSITY and EXPECTING-THE-BEST. We resonated with the Nature Spirits by living, simply living.

There comes a time, a moment when one simply cannot avoid recognition of integration. All of bounteous Nature, the Nature Spirits, the energetics, buzz, blitz, swim through us at all times, eternally. The imperative is to “Rise Out Of Rest” and participate!
