the matter of things

the matter of things - 2012 - with glass from basha beads

while matter may change states,

its essence does not...

so too for us;

though time and experiences

may affect the shell,

you are you 

as you are we...

the light shines from within...

time is making it perfectly clear

that becoming yourself 

is about removing the constructs... 

but deep inside, we already know that

don't we?


  1. So well written. You are a poet! Good thought for the day. Thanks!

  2. I love the texture and hues on it, very warm and tactile!

  3. Oh my gosh, every time I visit you, you speak to me! I love that piece of art you made, as well!

  4. peeling away the layers - is what makes it seem so frightening.
    The pendant is simply beautiful...

  5. The necklace is stunning as are you words.

  6. Many layers of meaning in your words and art~just lovely.

  7. the green is serene, very nice. ; ) sounded like a Beatles moment " I am the walrus"

    I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
    See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
    I'm crying.

    is that song too old?

  8. MJ - beautiful fire worked piece - love the reticulated metal; and as always your reflections add additional layers to the work - the core does not change. Go well. B

  9. A beautiful piece and a pretty special reminder to us all with your words. Holding true to the essence...

  10. such lovely profound words Maire ... the "scars" on the piece only gives it more character, just like our scars make us stronger and more resilient as human beings.


your thoughts and time are respected - thank you... responses back to you will arrive privately.
