By exploring my connection to the natural world, the exploration of my innermost fears and hopes also come into play.
Confronting the darkness within to reach some insight into the relationship with myself and with others.
To discover the roads that lead to understanding the motivations for my actions and the emotions that are brought to the surface.
The themes of sun and water often appear. The sun is my desire to let go of doubt and fear and embrace possibility.
Water is the unknown. I see my inner reflection in the world around me.
The Boat encompasses both themes. The setting sun is the last grasp at understanding the deep forces within
that can be overwhelming at times. The coming night spent alone and adrift without a sail or even a paddle
defines the powerlessness to navigate and control the tides of emotion and face my fear of the unknown.
Sometimes all you can do is hang on and hope for the dawn.
The Secret Universe is about the power of letting go.
Inviting the light inside to release dark thoughts and letting go of what no longer serves.
Allowing compassion for myself and others and leading with the heart.
The desire to absorb the warmth and brilliance of the sun.
To allow it to open my heart and let it overflow.
The tides, the sun, the wind, all reflect my inner landscape and the need to explore.
To express the desire to understand myself and the way in which I interpret my surroundings.
That desire is what drives me to create.
