Here is the finished Butterfly Picture – I guess I need to name it. I want to call it “out of the woods” because of the process that got me to this point. I found that the learning was huge in doing this piece, so that the beginning of the next few will be easier.
THIS PICTURE NOW LIVES AT THE WELLWOOD CENTER IN HAMILTON, ONTARIO.
Yesterday I saw this quote on a blog that I read weekly. It was from either a Lenard Cohen song or Poem.
RING THE BELLS THAT STILL CAN RING
FORGET YOUR PERFECT OFFERING
THERE IS A CRACK IN EVERYTHING
THAT’S HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN
I am so moved by this………probably more moved than I have been in a long time.
My interpretation of this tells me to ” ring the bells that still can ring” = do what you still can do
………..”forget your perfect offering” = stop not doing things because they/it may not be perfect…..
.”there is a crack in everything” = no thing is perfect, all have faults/cracks……………
.”that’s how the Light gets in” = it is in our humble state/ our brokeness that God/Light/Source get to us ……………Ah ah Amen
