embedded

i have continued to sit with the troubling images of the cedar tree that i wrote about in my last post. as i did, suddenly the barbed wire embedded in her flesh became transformed into a speculum holding the eye of my heart wide open...unblinking, and i saw my own complicity in the cruelty and suffering that exists in the world - twin beams of ignorance and indifference.

Stacy, I love both these mandalas that you have created because they show the amazing resilience of the cedar, of us, of Life. Stunning work!

the barbed wire seems to speak of both suffering and wholeness and the same time. Interesting....
