Continuing with the sketchbook inspired paintings and the series which I've titled "Where is Home?", this piece is completed. Where is Home? The question emerged sometime after my Dad died. Home in memory. All that is in a home, who makes it home. The image of the triangle, symbolizing journey, our journeys...but there is always home in some way for most of us on our life journey. One night I was driving home and a barn down the road was illuminated in moonlight. I identified with image of the barn and have related it to the universal 'home shape', four walls and a pointed roof.
It seems a lifetime has passed since last posting. Saying goodbye to this beautiful woman is a mysterious and beautiful part of my life (my brothers and sister's lives too.)
The last month or so has been spent tending my gardens and just being. Searching and navigating the new paths in life~~knowing deep in my heart that both she and Dad are dancing together.
And knowing too that she who lived each day wheelchair bound for so many years touched so many people. If you could have seen the people who processed in to say goodbye to her on her last day. Incredible.
So I know deep in my heart the lessons taught and learned. Live each day with a smile, laughter, and kindness. And there is so much more.
