Sarah Sandin  The art and heartbreak of living. Wild. CoFounder/Owner of @thestablessavannah @thestablescollection

There's a space at the bottom of an exhale, a little hitch between taking in and letting out that's a perfect zero you can go into. There's a rest point between the heart muscle's close and open - an instant of keenest living when you're momentarily dead. You can rest there.

None of us can ever know the value of our lives, or how our separate and silent scribbling may add to the amenity of the world, if only by how radically it changes us, one and by one.

Can you imagine that churned up, murky, opaque river. The memory keeper that holds all those moments of your life. Walking across that river bed, smooth warm rocks caressing your skin. The way the light filters through the silt in the water, like shelves that you set your precious frames on. It was in this sand and on these rocks I felt rooted. Lying on my back, sun burning eyes. And in this silt I kept my family’s darkest secrets. Just under the skin of the water. In that opaqueness. I kept it there for years.

Bringin that wagon

You should always fear/honor/respect/love a woman that can use tools and her hands.

You make me want to make something beautiful

Never worry about being obsessive. I like obsessive people. Obsessive people make great art.

I bet y’all would never guess I play fantasy football. Breezy killed it today 🙏🏽

My beautiful friend Jessica and I were on a highway driving through the Dakotas and spotted some hay bails. We hopped out of our truck, ran through someone’s property to get this shot for no other reason than art. Miss you Jess. ❤️

Miss the days when this old life
Free from all the pain and strife
And all the sorrow it has brung
I'd give anything to go
All the way back to Panbowl
All the way back to days when I was young

A prayer for our elders

For all their conserving and sacrificing and generous ways,

for their supreme caring

that decency, creative life, and care for the soul

should not vanish from the face of this earth.

For all this blessed beauty within them,

for them let us pray strength and healing,

straight down into their courage bones forever… …let us be granted that we stand in their danger … forever

That is, to be ourselves causes us to be exiled by many others, and yet to comply with what others want causes us to be exiled from ourselves.
