”Inside Looking Out”
....and so today i am sitting here, yes my place of hearing rest within the blog of this morning’s posting, a view of my way of seeing the dream, from ‘the inside looking out’....
As a worker of wood, I am always on the lookout for a new dream of some wonder-full images on my kaleidoscope of ‘wood art’. And so here I am again taking a break, as I meander around in the shop looking for that special, only one piece will do kind of board, to cut some trim from….and time stops as I pause to gaze out at the view that so surrounds me.
I am surrounded by, caught up in, hopelessly lost within and yet so blessedly found within this dreamscape of the landscape that so infatuates me with the longing of desire that comes from working the wood. Whether I am working in the forest of trees that links me to the wood or in my shop making sawdust and even to the point of walking the corridors of isles at some saw-makers-lumber-yard….I am linked with my thoughts of wood as they are the dreams of what shall yet be….more, ‘wood art’!
....and so here I go dreaming again of what shall you yet be….
I cut this burl a few years ago and it has been doing drying time, however there is a pull coming from the wood that is causing me to start paying more attention to this one….ah yes, the birthing of an image is starting to gather up place-of-space within my head….and yes, in case your wondering, this is how it all starts. In the winter time I tend to gather my dreams around me and sort them out as I prepare to start creating with the bloomings of spring. And can I say spring has sprung, well at least in my spirit it’s bloomin’ spring time!!!
Thank you all, for also looking and dreaming with me.
