In the back’s low hollow sometimes
a weightless hand guides me, gentle pressure
so I tack soft as a sailboat. (Go there)
Soften the space between your eyes (smudge
of eucalyptus), the third eye
opens. There’s the wide vermillion sky
that cradled us before birth,
and the sun pours its golden sap
to preserve me like His precious insect. ~Mary Karr, "Meditatio"
Thank you again to everyone who responded to my recent posts about the loss of Ruby, our corgi. I was truly touched by your words of support, and it helped me so much. I mean that from the heart.
Today I'm happy to participate in Bonnie's monthly photo art prompt. This month's theme is "sky". I chose a photo from our Hilton Head trip this past summer because I got so many incredible sky photos during that week. This is an image of my daughter staring off at the sunset - I used Bonnie's "heavenly" texture at Multiply/63%. I also used the cutout effect in PSE to give it a more contemporary feel. There were multiple passes through Radlab, and then I added the text at the end. I think this image is a perfect representation of "peace", at least for me, anyway. As I've mentioned many times on this blog, I never feel more at peace than I do while walking beside the ocean.
