Assemblage finished 10-29-01. Some of the things that are on my mind. Vincent VanGogh, especially his Starry Night. Venus. Love. Beauty. Darkness. Nature. Hope. Despair. Believe. Our World. The Source. Connectedness. Rebirth. To quote the mystic poet Rumi:
This being is a guest house
Every day a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest as honorable. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
