Where did we leave off?
At the lap lap sound of the sea. At the miniature plein air studio, making miniature self-soothing art. Where we parted two weeks ago was in the place where art, nature and self-care meet. (see Art and Emotional Labour)
I have supported a close elderly relative
to move to a deeper level of aged care,
into a tiny new world.
I easily love a tiny new world, when
that world is a rock pool,
filmy with layered life.
I easily love a tiny new world,
when that world is a sweet language scribblingly etched in sandy rock.
I easily love a tiny new world, when that world
spaciously created by
me, with colour and texture, in
the moment, in the Zone.
A tiny new world
within an aged care facility,
that takes a little longer to learn to love.
Are you too intrigued by rockpools, microcosmic lands, worlds-within-worlds?
with love, art and soul
