"All of us have IN OUR VEINS the exact same percentage of SALT in our blood that exists in the ocean...we have salt IN OUR BLOOD, in our SWEAT, in our TEARS.  We are tied to the ocean.  And when we go back to the sea...we are going back to whence we came." - John F. Kennedy, 1962.

Reflections: 

A Soul's Journey

 
 “If success or failure of this planet
 and of human beings 
depended on
 who I am
and
 what I do
 … 
How would I be?  
What would I do?” 
-Buckminster Fuller 


HOPE
...

"In 1965 Smalley was presented with a dilemma.  Solving the problem soon became his personal mission...
At the time, stranded seals and sea lions were visibly suffering alone...especially the
new born harbor seal pups, which, ...
have an uncanny knack for saying
"Maaa"...
So well meaning people brought these sick animals to Smalley in the hopes they would receive treatment... But again and again Smalley had to break the news there was no place to take these sick and suffering animals...
By the end of 1965, Smalley agreed to take the ailing animals and the word quickly spread. "  Today the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA is a state of the art hospital, research center, and education facility.
"...the diseases that its scientists have discovered in animals have alerted us to dangers that humans might soon face...
seals and sea lions swim near urban coasts, eat the same fish that we do, and suffer from diseases that could afflict humans..."
Call to the Rescue, The Story of the Marine Mammal Center by Joe Quirk.

Inhale ...
As the journey opens
to reveal its beauty
one inhales the magnitude
of nature ...
a feast for the eyes...
food for the soul

What if
our philosophies are
REVERSED and 
WE are the
entrusted
CARETAKERS
?
How are we doing ?
. . .


Openness...


allows the journey
to reveal its meaning
letting go of 
predefined perceptions
a new path beckons
illuminating Direction...
Mile Marker 26

Life gives brief spaces
creating full circles
...
spaces
for beginnings
glimpses of awareness
HOPE
...
spaces
for endings
letting go of desires
...
Emptiness

To embark on a Journey is to 
Discover New Depths
within one's Soul
while
reflecting on
surrounding views
...

A Journey begins with a thought
A Journey ends with new awareness
One leads to another
a circle
never ending
...
Preparing for the Journey is
Overlooked
or considered separate...
Not even a part of
the Journey
overshadowed by expectations
of the Destination
...
As when
FOCUS
is
on the OBJECT in
ART
not the PROCESS in
CREATING
...
CHOOSE
to create
small moments
Works of Art
Life happens
Discover meaning
...
KNOW
truth within beauty
...
Life Is
HOW
 Art Works

"If man in a time of need seeks deeper 
knowledge concerning himself, then he must explore those animal horizons from which we have made our quick little march." - Robert Andrey, African Genesis, 1961.

is one dream, one possibility, one belief, that if we shift our focus from the object to the process, then art works to generate awareness.


We are small and we believe we can grow by word of mouth.
