Being Human – Cycle Of Life

It has been a couple of months since I last connected with all of you -- and a huge shift has happened in my life: my mother has died. A beautiful death -- she, Eleanor vibrant until the last hours-- with hospice, at home, our close family singing her on her way. It is an archetypal moment -- where we all must stand at some point in our lives. Mother -- our gateway to life, with all of the complicated years of growing in her guidance and her shadow. A profound loss, and also a kind of freedom.

In the midst, my daughter, Antara shared the sweet, joyous news that she and Zach are pregnant with their first child! With joy and sadness swirling, I traveled to Mexico for our annual art camp retreat. There, I mostly wrote, and created with the environment. I would like to share some of my findings with you.
