Laura Aikins Hatfield  “Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.” -D. Winnicott 🔸 All images and edits are my own.

In this age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.
-Criss Jami

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
-John Lennon

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” -Thomas Merton

The fog is sweet. It envelopes my being, and it calms my nerves. Its obscurity awakens my senses. Always on my toes, I am alert. This mist, it refreshes my soul. Once more, I am young in search of danger. The fog, it draws me in. I cannot fight it and I won’t. It beckons my name, and it knows who I am. The shroud opens. I enter it, the fog. It swallows me whole. I will never return. For in this abyss, I feel alive. I crave life and life craves me. -R Daniel

Flight ~ I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

Rejoice with glitters of ashes tonight
Sparkling for moon's spiced silver bite
Upon skin of darkness, loving night more
Storm begins unlocking cold wind's door
-Munia Khan

The beauty of the universe consists not only of unity in variety, but also of variety in unity. -Umberto Eco

The snow began to fall again, drifting against the windows, politely begging entrance and then falling with
disappointment to the ground -Jamie McGuire

But even when the moon looks like it's waning...it's actually never changing shape. Don't ever forget that. -Ai Yazawa

A winters day bloom. Grateful to my sweet sister in-law who gave it, and then potted it when we’d been to distracted to do it.

awake, chaos: we have napped. -e.e. cummings • It’s a nearly full moon, and I’ve got not much to keep me occupied but to go through old photos and edit them on my phone before taking another nap.

Under the weather | Under the covers.

I've always envied people who sleep easily. Their brains must be cleaner, the floorboards of the skull well swept, all the little monsters closed up in a steamer trunk at the foot of the bed.
-David Benioff

Transformations are a part of life. We are constantly being changed by things changing around us. Nobody can control that. Nobody can control the environment, the economy, luck, or the moods of others. Compositions change. Positions change. Dispositions change. Experiences change. Opportunities and attitudes change. You will change.
-Suzy Kassem

In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance. ~Jeanette Winterson

But to pay attention is to love everything.
~Sarah Manguso

Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees... -Mary Oliver

As one who would rather light a candle than curse the darkness. -Richard Paul Evans [Trying to be, at least!]

A positive is just two negatives going in two different directions. So, if something doesn't work, change tact, and come at it from a different direction. You never know, it may just work. That's being positive for ya! -Anthony T. Hincks

Life is like breathing. If you try to hold it, you'll lose it. But let it come and go and you'll always be connected to it.

We make patterns, we share moments. ~Jenny Downham

Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth. ~Roman Payne

May your days be merry and bright...
~Irving Berlin

If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
-Masaru Emoto 🔸 Happy we have passed the Solstice; grateful for the return of the sun.
