Universal Glue


The month of February 
gives us opportunity 
to muse about such things..

as I work on my art journal pages for 
and I am writing my annual love letter
to myself..

I realized in the studio the other day,
gazing around as I wrote..

just how many hearts I have,
 that others have given me..
and many that I have made myself..
for myself..

When I think of love...

I cannot wrap my head around
the allness of it..

the heart shape seems like such a tiny symbol
for something so great..
something so all encompassing...

for me, to try to define it, is to limit it
and to classify it would be an attempt to diminish it..

To use art terms..
I think that 
Love is a universal glue..
it holds everything together..
it keeps planets spinning in orbit
and concerns itself with the tiniest of flowers..

for me, it is in all the details..
and it can heal everything..

So as I celebrate 
Valentine's day..
I wish you love..
May you find many things about yourself
that are beautiful...
and may it all unfold in..

What an incredible and heartfelt post. The idea of hearts and love healing and the glue that ties us all together seemed so simple, yet so elusive. I love all your hearts and I love your words. I love that you speak from your heart. Happy Valentine's Day to you, too, dear Cat.

Isn't it a joy....to finally not only feel love for others but to meet oneself with sweet cherished love. It seemed to take me such a long time to learn my greatest love began with loving me. Happy Valentine's Day to you and all your loves.
