Explore the edges —
In nature it is in the edges where the most interesting mingling of species happens, the greatest biodiversity appears. The edge of wood and field, of field and river, ice and rock, ocean and sand. Both plant life and animal life has a certain abundance and adaptability in the edges…just like in nature. For me as an artist the edge represent that mingling of muse and spirit that sparks the act of creation. Most everything has an edge somewhere. What might be hiding there waiting to be revealed…I often walk the edges when I am out with the dogs and find it to be a full place for noticing, for seeing what is sometimes unseen and for finding that hidden jewel amongst the brambles. It is in the daily and ordinary parts of life that the most exciting things are revealed to me, where the most happens in the edges of my life. What are your edges, where do you explore?
Where do you find that mingling of muse and spirit?
