Went out for breakfast this morning and realized some of my close friends don't know the details of our upcoming art show. Tomorrow evening is the opening - and as you probably suspected we are frantic.
In the previous blogs I have described Odia's and Cliff's art. It is breath-taking. I am overwhelmed with their talent.
I am not so impressed with mine. In fact - it almost appears non-existent this year. I will put up some of my older work - White on White - but I really haven't anything new for this show. My recent work is hanging on the walls of Soul Sanctuary - of which I am both humbled and proud.
So in order to remain a contributing artist member of this group - I am submitting my book, This Mortal Coil, which will be appearing in print form for the first time this Good Friday.
Now when I think about it - it might be more art than a book. My motive in writing it wasn't for wide distribution, though I did want it openly available, I wrote it to express myself. I wrote it to free myself of the story within and the emotions that tied me to my story.
It worked. I have definitely felt so much freer since I wrote it.
I think that is one of the definitions of what is art - that which is an expression of the soul. At least that is my definition at the moment.
I am also aware that even though Odia's art is her own - I am involved with her art as well. I am attached already to this new member of our family, our grandchild, Georgia Wynne - who won't be able to attend even though she is the star of the show.
She is doing very well, gaining weight, crying, and sleeping.
Our hearts remain full - blessed - and just pleased.
Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering. - Steve Maraboi
