Apr TIFC - Day Seven - Done!



It took two months but I am declaring April's TIFC done. The challenge of How do you see change? found it's way to this piece: first, through my belief that change is just a part who I am; second, inspired by a poem of Alexander Pope; and finally by the Greek for 'know thyself' - Gnothi Seauton. I think I'll call the piece "Know Thyself" - it's about 17" x 33".

Living consciously...

An interesting exercise today, to think of yourself as a vast space with a lot of activity in it - oddly enough, that is how I think. (vast space? infinite pool? - all kinds of room for possibilities... something like that.) My problem is I do give it room and often just get lost in it. Hours go by. I am learning to pause more, if only to remind myself to be aware of the moments.

I enjoyed your piece and makes me think, OH NO!

Congratulations and good job. I like the arrows; they express the "back and forth" of life well.

This day's Living Consciously convinced me I should start at January after all. I couldn't quite make the leap to "think of yourself as a vast space," and decided to go back to basics. So it's January 11 in my book :)
