I have been consumed by these fires. Tho on the other side of the planet, I have felt the heat of the flames, overwhelmed by compassion for all creatures and communities impacted. I have watched in disbelief, horror, hope, fear, fascination. I have witnessed in myself and society the desperate urge to temper and control the wildness of the elements. Yet nature, in her raw and untamable essence, will never be fully bridled and held. This is the dance of existence, a desperate longing of union and balance, the push and pull of chaos and order. It is the dance of the masculine and feminine within us all.
This painting has been my meditation in the past week. Sending so much love to you all.
