Our Lady of The Sweet Waters








*

It grows late and I won't sleep.


*

I am burning.


*


I cannot slake my thirst.



*


I make art instead.




*





It is as sweet as any water.





*


Namaste.

A perfect vision, both image and words. Loved it.

This is very mysterious. I wish I could watch you create this work, but I suppose that's done down in the batcave, carefully guarded....
so interesting, thank you

Wonderfully serene. I'd pray to that Lady.

Lydia-

Thank you! Glad you came by.


Melissa-

There's no secret, although there IS a Bat Cave!

I just play with mostly found images and layer them and collage them, etc. until it speaks to me in a deep way and then I stop.

Although I can't really stop.


Mim-

I'd pray to her to. I think I will.

She is so otherworldly. She makes my heart hurt. She looks like a nun is supposed to look like. Hope you are feeling better.

New to your blog, Namaste - is that your name? Is it impolite of me to ask?

your writing and the images that accompany it are wonderful.

I have come here through the silence blog. You praise her writing and I praise yours. Thanks.

Elisabeth-

Welcome, welcome! I'm so glad you found this place and that you like it here.

As for Namaste, it is a sanskrit word that is used as a greeting that can be as simple as "I bow to you" or, going a bit deeper, "I honor the God within you", etc.

I use it because it feels good.


Anyway, welcome, and thanks, and I hope we'll see more of each other.

Thanks for the welcome, Tearful. I'll have to get used to addressing you thus - Tearful.

What a great name, very tongue in cheek, I imagine. You don't sound tearful, rather you sound cheerful.

The collage is beautiful--her gibbous face is an icon of calm.
