How curious it is that true Brilliance can only be seen glimmering in the Darkness, and true Stillness found amidst Chaos. The dualities of Life never cease to amaze me.

It’s becoming ironically clearer and clearer to me that feeling confused is a very natural human state, one that we shouldn’t fight against, but completely embrace. Clarity within chaos? Ah beautiful paradoxes.
“Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.” ~ George Saunder
Journals out, writing fiercely: the antidote to chasing the shapes of unclear ideas within this head of mine. The creative process gone a little mad. “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
I’m excited to be embarking on a new art series that I’m calling “Chaos & Cosmos” where I’ll be exploring the mandala, the alchemy of self-transformation and our interconnectedness. Check out my beginnings here on Flickr:
“There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical man, which are inborn in him from the earliest times, eternally living, outlasting all generations, still make up the groundwork of the human psyche. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” ~ C.G. Jung
