Moving on

I suspect some of you will breathe a sigh of relief when I say I've decided to stop publishing these constructed images for a while.

It's not that I won't still be working on them, or that I won't be sharing them from time to time.  But with all the possibilities that are opening up around them, they take longer to create.  I was only able to generate one yesterday, and when I emerged from my office late in the afternoon my body was definitely objecting to the time pressure -- and the image really didn't feel quite done.

It's good, I think, to listen to what our bodies tell us; good to notice when the balance is off, and good, also, to notice when the seasons change and the demands on our time begin to shift. 

And so I ask -- what's shifting in your life?  What wants to be born in you, and what needs to be weeded or pruned to give it space to grow?  Where has the balance shifted; where do you feel constricted -- and what would it take for you to breathe more comfortably?  Listen to what your body is telling you...

Diane ... I understand your need to follow your body ... but this series is amazing and this one really speaks to me. I'm sure whatever you do next will be stunning also. Would love to hear some of your creative process thoughts along the way.

This image is speaking most loudly to me! it is amazing.

Looking forward to whatever shifts you share -- I am always enlightened in your sharing.
