Cold weather, dreams, and flying deer.

The days are getting shorter and there are things to do to prepare
for the cold days ahead, and

  the long nights to come,
of winds of sleeting rain that threaten to come inside
lest the windows are shut tight.

A chill in the air brings the gathering
of fuel,

and lingering days of soaking up
the sun,

and for dreams,...

of flying deer .

Drawings inspired by
The Canticle of St. John of the Cross.
A joint project.
 Artists, Barbara Beeckmans from Belgium and Dori Stuffer
from Germany and myself are undertaking the readings of medieval mystic,
 Juan de Yepes y Alvarez and are finding that
the creative process is a mystery in and of itself.

Stanza 20.
Swift-winged birds,
lions, stags, and leaping roes,
mountains, lowlands, and river banks,
waters, winds, and ardors,
watching fears of night:

These are drawings that flow from deep within,
out through the
arm, and deposited on paper.

Here I have selected to show the "swift winged birds" of the imagination
and a quiet bird being held much like what is held in the
mind during moments of stillness and quietude.
The fish represents water.
Water representing sorrow of the soul.

I dedicate this post to the mystery in Art that come from still and quiet places.

 The quiet and sorrowful beauty of Harvest Moon painted by George Inness.
