sanctuary

 
art needs to be received by face to face encounters
maker and receiver

'we should remember that we cannot perceive our 3 dimensionality or what is alive about ourselves, and we cannot see our own faces.  we continually require the affirmation of others to testify that we are forms occupying space'

'what the practice of art in general might be for is the carrying forward of a practice of ethical encounters between persons.  art offers a sanctuary for such future encounters'

you are the perfect age

 
I am old but I am forever young at heart.
We are always the same age inside.
Know that you are the perfect age.
Each year is special and precious, you can only live it once.
Do not regret growing older, it's a privlege denied to many.

it has to be loved as if it were embroidered with flowers and birds

 
no suit of armour ever offers a comparable sense of protection than to be desired

to be desired is the closest anybody can reach in life to feeling immortal

journey to softness

A love story occured during the last few weeks
with my deepest inner self

It arrived at through body
and imagination
and
I am changed
I love that self deep within me now
where before I had not recognized her / him
and did not realize that she/he was even there

Not emotionally teetering anymore but rather,
on a journey to softness

relics

 
a relic is an object havig interest because of its age and association with the past
a fetish is an object believed to contain a spirit, have magical powers

both relic and fetish try to capture the essence of an experience

sacrifice

 
sacrifice

a word that does not mean to give up
it means to make sacred
