No Naked Walls: A Time for Reflection

Into the Future

One of the blogs I follow is that of Donna Iona Drozda.  http://donnaionadrozda.com/ABOUT.html  She is a wonderful artist who has come through adversity and risen above it.  I was quite taken by a recent post on her blog Following the Moon, http://donnaionadrozda.com/blog/.   It was about November being a time of introspection.  I have always liked the idea of the cycle of things but the past few years I seem to have lost the habit of reflection.  The idea of things dying away in the fall, the possible new incubating in the dark of winter like a baby in the womb, then awakening and growing in the spring is wonderful.  Her post has revived my commitment to introspection, to thinking what it is that I want to leave behind as 2010 comes to and end and what it is that I want to nurture and grow over the winter months ready to burst out and bloom in summer 2011.  "An unexamined life is not worth living" said Socrates so I better get to it!

Hi Susanne
Thank you so much for sharing a link to Following the Moon... it's lovely to slow the pace and allow 'Luna See' to show a quieter way to live our Art/Life.
