ART IS AN EXPRESSION OF OUR INNER TURMOIL AND LIFE.
Art is so expressive and speaks volumes to where words sometimes lack. I often use one of Natasha’s expressions of art in a posting as it tells the story. Here I am adding my words to my daughter’s art and what her pieces are saying to me.
Life is a dream is it divine or just dreamy?
Sometimes we get lost in an illusion of who we are, which one are we really?
Are we just one of the angry crowd? lost and soulless?
IS our voice trapped under a cloud unable to express but forever swallowing the rain?
Are we hearing others wisdom? Are we conflicted trapped in insecurity?
Do we have so many voices within us we can’t hear or feel our selves?
Is our heart in the right place and do we feel it beat to the drum of life?
Are we just living an obedient life without objection?
Are you Dancing to someone else’s tune pleasing others at our own expense?
Or are we just spinning a web of self-deceit lies longing for more longing for love?
Why do we let the feeling linger when we know it does not serve us?
Is loneliness all there is?
Are you tired of the neverending fight against the wind? then turn around
Our eyes are not the only window, our hearts and souls are doors too
As we sit on our wall of expectation with our heads in the sky, do we listen to the universe?
Can we hold our selves together being one with soul heart spirit mind are we too divided?
Can we unravel our mind and become whole in the flow of all that is?
Should we just dance to life’s woes and smile instead?
Can we rule over our own choices?
Can I become the portrait of my dreams?
Am I free of my own captivity free to finally be me?
IN THE END, IT IS HOW WE CHOOSE TO DANCE IN LIFE, IN PAIN AND DESPAIR OR LONELINESS OR TO CHOOSE TO IN LOVE AND LIGHT OF LIFE, FOR CHOICE, IS WHAT WE ALL HAVE, AND WHEN WE KNOW THAT WE WOULD HAVE EMPOWERED OUR SELVES TO PAINT OUR OWN CANVASS AND GET UP AND DANCE TO OUR OWN RHYTHM OF LIFE.
ART BY NATASHA, MY DAUGHTER, WHOSE ART EXPRESSES OF THE PAIN DISPONCANCY AND LONELINESS THAT WE ALL FEEL FROM TIME TO TIME, IS SO VERY PREVALENT HERE. THE PIECES CHOSEN WAS MY NARRATIVE OF FEELING AND EXPRESSIONS THAT I HAVE FELT IN MY LIFE. NOW I AM IN CHOOSING TO GET UP AND DANCE.
