A Reassuring State of Impermanence
“Life doesn’t last, art doesn’t last.” - Eva Hesse.
I don’t want to say I am envious of my daughter’s spontaneous art-making abilities, but I am. Here she made a ‘birthday cake’. I love how this little sculpture looks and I admire how she can create worlds from what is around her. She time travels to times she loves - parties, holidays and times that are pure fantasy - conversations with dragons.
I want to work on this ability. To create worlds wherever I am or create a change in the ones that exist. Magick indeed.
Outside we can look to what is at hand and in so doing embrace the temporary nature of ourselves.
Everything is impermanent, everything has cycles and phases. This fact can be sad and also liberating. We live many lives. Even within this one right now.
Begin with a circle and go from there.
