petals in brass - 2012
'lightly, child, lightly.
you've got to learn to do everything lightly.
think lightly, act lightly, feel lightly.
yes, feel lightly, even though you're feeling deeply.'
- aldous huxley island
it was interesting today to realize that while working with a stiff metal,
heating & reheating
folding & unfolding
gently bending and forming,
i was, in fact, doing it lightly...
much gratitude to robyn gordon at art propelled for sharing this passage... i immediately got the book and have since finished it...
a beautiful & worthwhile read...
