Can you be lost and found at the same time?
Here’s my paintage (painting + collage)
Lost and Found in the Forest.
And here’s the story behind the picture.
I couldn’t sleep. I ventured into the night-time forest of the Blue Mountains. I saw the full moon. I felt utterly safe. Next day, people at the camp said ‘didn’t you read the signs about not going into the bush alone?’
Now please bear with me as I share the song lyrics I’ve just written to accompany Lost and Found in the Forest. It’s a bit daggy, as we say in Australia.
Never mind. I’ve nothing to lose except my self-respect as a creator. Ha! Which is just about everything.
(to be sung to the tune of Amazing Grace)
How deep the sound
of full moon in the trees.
I’m lost in woods,
Yet here I’m found,
My heart and head at ease.
Twas here I wandered wide awake.
I had not seen the sign.
My balm to ease the social ache
Was forest calm and fine.
How clear and bright.
I stand on solid ground,
The spirits singing in the night,
Protection all around.
Thank you for your patience. Finally, here’s the news.
Ta-daa! What was lost has been found.
Remember Bird O’Clock?
The originator has declared herself.
It is the clever creative woman Kath Unsworth whose blog is called Minuscule Moments of Inspiration.
Here’s the post that got me going on my Bird-and-Time path.
The original Bird O’Clock.
Thank you, Kath. At last you can receive the applause and take a bow.
