Life - On The Rocks. I began my rocks theme whilst headed for a breakdown. Not the first, nor even the 19th. Embracing my darkness. Is it not as valuable as my lightness and joy? Small child in lower right symbolic of my beginnings, with beads flowing towards thank you to my parents, my loved ones who have died. Time. Tao. Cycles of Life. 7 layers of rocks. Ship represents my inability to navigate the proper channels. Books, learning, higher consciousness, postcard of Lady Artist quotes Longfellow ~ Art is Long, and Time is Fleeting... I turned 50 last December.
The three chains attached to pin at top represent past, present, future. Butterfly symbolizes rebirth. Small soldier is at ease, with helmet off. Tiny believe sign is in the rocks. Magic Genie. I used rocks that have their own particular meanings. Aventurine, garnets, citrine, agates, carnelian. Now belongs in the Misty Dunmore collection.
