For years now, I have noticed that I really love patterns. I love to find them, count them, sort them, color them, reorganize them and so on. I find the act of repetition or repetition itself very centering and very healing. My mind, body and spirit come together as one during these moments of “pattern bonding” and my world of chaos becomes calm.
There is no right or wrong in this process, it’s a pure act, untethered by rules, by judgments, requirements and expectations.
I have come to think of repetition as a form of invocation. Honestly, as I get older and live with this love affair with patterns, I begin to truly understand their power and how meaningful they are in my particular life.

I hope this will still be up when we return from our trip. I only read a couple and knew if I let myself get too much into it I would pay for it. As I told you, by the end of the day I'm tired and in s little pain. I didn't want to make it a lot. But the messages you have in your art seem to have come together with this piece. First of all, it's strikingly beautiful, especially the way it moves. And the healing messages of the pieces I read spoke to me. I can only imagine what the full impact will be when I can give Halcyon the time and attention it deserves. Thank you for bringing beauty and peace to the world. As you said, we need to grab moments when we can and appreciate the now.

Thank you for your insightful words. I really appreciate when the time is taken to hear what I have to say and connect with my art in a personal way. I strive to bring out that inner spark we all have, some are closer to the surface and some are deeper.
