Water World

This painting, posted by Moses's grandma, rather reflects how I am feeling. There's something so Frida Khalo-esque about it. You'd think I'd find that rippling sea, dipping as if to a waterfall, unsettling, and yet this image comforts me, the depth and vividness of the red and the blue, the rootedness of the bedposts, the hopeful moon. No, I don't find the dreamer's journey unsettling at all. To me, she looks girded for a great adventure.

  1. Darlin', this picture depicts a womb experience. There can be few things more comforting than that. Take in both your arms and hold it tight.

  2. Of course! You are so right. How did I not see that?

  3. You know, I'm beginning to wonder if this malaise you speak of feeling isn't perhaps a preparation for a new birth. There are stages in our lives, and our spirits/angels prepare us for them if we listen.

  4. You know, Glenn, I had the same thought when you mentioned the womb experience. I think I am trying to be reborn somehow. My angels are whispering. xo

  5. Aw...isn't it awesome when a window into a type of enlightenment is flung open?
    By the way- I love that picture too.

  9. I love the bedposts coming up from the sea - rooted, like you said, in such an unstable surface.
