...waiting...





You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting to be born ...
Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter you long before it happens ...
Just wait for the birth ... for the hour of clarity.

~Rainer Maria Rilke


I'm waiting.

  3. "The future must enter you long before it happens..."

    In find so much comfort in that. I sometimes believe that change just happens, we decide to the this then we are that. But real change isn't like that, it's a journey, a process. And part of getting to it can be difficult or awkward but you need to go through that to get to the change.

    The image is just amazing, and feels like clarity.

    Thank you for this!

  8. I saw the shade of pink and somehow knew I was going to like this, but I didn't realize the quote would challenge me and sit well with me both at the same time. You are so very good at doing that and I think I not only learn something, but I grow each time I visit.

    "The future must enter you long before it happens" Very profound statement to me... thank you!

  9. Thank you for Rilke. The one quote from him that stays with me, and so relevant, especially at the point in my life right now is: "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart...live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually without noticing it live along some distant day into the answer."

  10. Maybe gestation is one of the hardest truths to accept. But it gets easier to learn over time.

    The patterns and textures of your image, with that color, are striking.
