I’m still hiding in a few shadows, but if I didn’t have any shadows left, I’m afraid I would be scorched by the sun. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Secrets can be destructive or protective. It depends on who is keeping what from who. White lies are what keep things running smoothly– not to say that people should lie more often, or necessarily that people should intentionally lie at all… but maybe not giving the entire truth unless asked is the best way to keep a few shadows hanging around. I feel like I am mostly in the light– I can only think of two things that I haven’t told a couple of people in my life. They aren’t important things, so they can stay in the shadows for a while longer.
Another sense of coming into the light– spending time with my long-time friend on memorial day brought some feelings into the light. It feels good to have those out in the open. The world seems a little brighter now that we are honest and open with each other. I like the feeling 🙂 I guess the photo represents how my ceramic art has been brought into the light (so to speak). Recently, my classmates and I were featured online in the university art department website gallery. It was also a great feeling, and this is the first of my pieces that appear in the gallery. I like knowing that I am being recognized by my professors as having accomplished a certain level in the program, and I like that other people can know what I’ve accomplished without me telling them. Of course, the website gallery doesn’t get all that many viewers on a regular basis, but it’s just the concept that my art is publicly available to view on an official school website. It’s good 🙂
Speaking of all of this light, I should change into my bikini and go catch some sun in my outdoor studio 😉 It’s beautiful outside right now, and I’ve got to finish a couple of projects.
