Our souls are light, our souls are love, are God, our souls are Universe. And we are asleep, living in a fantasy of wishing, longing, desire, lust and greed. Beauty, compassion, joy and love shine through the veil of our dreams. These glimmers of light make us look for a way to move beyond the possessiveness, despair and doubts of the dream.
Once we see through the veil, then we step onto the boat to reach the other shore and leap into the unknown. The unknown of your mind, where your heart belonged all along.
It was an unseasonably warm and bright afternoon in January as I found myself walking by the shore of a remote cove in Wales. Waves crashing on the rocks reverberated in my soul with the experience only open seas can give.
Timeless, primal fury of the ocean brought serenity and a sense of belonging.
I stood there for a while, basking in the sunshine of that glorious afternoon, talking to the stones about the days long gone.
This photograph was taken when the sun briefly broke through dark, thick clouds on a stern January afternoon. Near-zero degree temperature and punishing, steady, sixty kilometres per hour wind ensured the beach was nearly deserted.
Despite warm clothes, I was occasionally shaking. Yet, I felt happy, at peace, in an almost trance state of unity with nature, feeling blessed to be there.
This artwork expresses that uplifting, glorious feeling of belonging. It tells of the racing sea lighting my soul with a warm amber glow.
