Kaleidoscope

 

fb_img_15476579609146347767327106600996.jpgMy blog was intended to be a documentation of a journey I began four years ago. In the course of that time, the journey has become more of a storm I have to travel through to arrive on the other side. I began by slowly taking very small steps toward somewhere. At first it was all mechanical in nature, but it eventually seemed to be taking shape as a life began to appear. I expressed a sigh of relief as I assumed I had maneuvered through the storm and noticed signs of the shoreline ahead. The assumption, I quickly discovered, was premature as I took a moment to gaze back over the obstacles I had conquered. Although victorious in so many respects, I was about to understand I was standing in the eye of the storm and would soon discover there was more work to be done.

As I wrote for this blog, I unintentionally began to visit old wounds….thoughts, beliefs, and fears. I have begun to realize not only was I burying what I did not want to deal with, but I was inadvertently burying parts of myself as well. I slowly became empty and overwhelmingly full at the same time. I am being tossed and battered by tremendous waves of my own creation.

My chaos evident in the kaleidoscope of ideas I have posted. The topics and forms are quite varied. An eclectic array of all I have been feeling and dealing with in this short time span. Each marked by its own unique beauty in some type of art form. However, I long to be directed by my muse into my own style: to find my unique niche in this world. I am slowly beginning to understand for such a forward movement to take place I need to find all parts of me. Allowing them to become fused and old ideals let go in order to transform me into who I AM. It is evidently necessary that I must become the catalyst of change if I want conquer the stormy seas.

With each turn, the kaleidoscope creates endless depictions of beauty…

I too, like the kaleidoscope, am ever changing;

The next form of beauty is just one turn away.

Today and Tomorrow

20160116_natural twinkle lights_Dorthea lane_0019The past teaches, the present reflects, and the future reveals…
What then has your experiences taught you?
How do you treat yourself?
How do you treat others?
Character, perceptions, and beliefs are we…
So when you look in the mirror what do you see?
…..

Support and understanding,
Criticism and judging,
Confidence and determination,
Doubt and fear,
Sympathy and empathy,
Arrogance and apathy.

We are our lessons and experiences,
We may choose to remain or to change.
What we are is today,
What we become is tomorrow.

A Creative Day

Just leaving a note…I have posted under my pages and I revised my site. There are more focused pages specific to the inspired creations. The pages are an expansion of my inspirations. Some days words just flow and other days a photo inspires me. Occasionally, one will inspire the other and passions collide into a composite which includes both [Synergism]! Enjoy!!!
