You wake up and it’s a beautiful day

July 11, 2013


You wake up and it’s a beautiful day, glad to be alive, sitting in my car and I feel free, the world looks good and I’ve got my sketch book out and my batman pen set so here goes: Life is simply too beautiful a gift to waste and for all that has come my way from family tragedy to the negativity poured upon me at times and the years of struggle I’m still left with an overwhelming optimism for life and the world. On an experiential level life is pretty good and to be alive is a great privilege that one should never take for granted by cherishing each moment as part of the whole. I have in my own life grown to enjoy the moment whether it be standing in the rain or swimming in the freezing sea or just sitting on the grass in the warmth of the sun. As I get older even the sound of near silence enthralls me as I rest in the comfort of my own thoughts, adrift and free from the shackles of societies imposition. I have worked hard to find this place and switched off all the noise and distractions, a place of inner peace in a beautiful world and at this moment in time life feels so uncomplicated.  It’s like a rekindling of my birth right of what I was born with and the love and balance of my childhood brought together bringing me to a place where I can once again work undaunted.  I want my work to be a celebration that expresses the sheer wonderment of existence in all its complexity and to explore the most beautiful mystery of all that is life itself. There is no definitive reason for being or parameters on our ability to explore but the magic comes alive when you explore your creativity in an open dialogue with self and through a language without words. Today my mind and body feel relaxed and my love affair with life feels calmly intense and for some reason my lifes work makes more sense than ever before. If I had to sum it all up with a few words they would be as follows : playful, joyous, questioning, mysterious, dark, provocative, peaceful, celebratory, votive, compassionate, beautiful, loving, confronting, awe-struck and finally WOW because that is what we are offered through our gift of life, wow.

Through art we can find a window to the soul

PS – When I finished writing this I got out of the car and went into a coffee shop, ordered my black coffee and the woman serving me said because you smile so much you can have it for free, confirming today that life on the whole is good.
