Good hand and evil hand

Looking at “Give Me Your Hand by Michelle “Shell” Rummel I remember how as a child I was taught to give the “good” hand as a greeting. I was a slow learner and ever so often stretched out my left – to the embarrassment of my parents.

Hey, give the good hand!” And their embarrassment became my embarrassment and so I started to hit the “evil” hand with the “good” one. And it took me decades to see that it is the dark side where the flowers grow. The unprotected side, that isn’t always “right”.

How does time translate into space?

June 1, 2011 2 comments

Looking at an iPad drawing by Alison Jardine:

  • How does time translate into space?
  • Does this translation help us to better understand what time is?
  • Is time always history?
  • How does any special moment we remember relate to time? And what does this relation look like if it’s translated into space?
  • How do these questions relate to our potential as humans?
In my dreams time often appears as a ride on a train. Often I miss the train, or I am on the wrong train, or I am on one train and my love is on another, or I am in a huge station and there are many trains and I have to pick the right one.
Sometimes I don’t stand on the departure platform, but I come from behind, walking on the tracks towards all these trains. Clearly not doing the right thing, clearly being unorthodox, clearly being in danger. All alone on a field of danger.
And ONE of those trains might just be the RIGHT time slot for me.
And sometimes, looking back: where was that spot where I could have moved into a different direction? SHOULD have moved into a different direction? But I never look back that way in dreams – must be a thing of the waking mind.

Where sins are forgiven it’s all about sin

Looking at Sheila Bessette’s photo “Where sins are forgiven“: Where sins are forgiven it’s all about sin, sin, sin.

The logic of life is one valued.

To speak is to divide

Looking at “Trying to Speak” by Miriam Climenhaga. To speak is to divide, to be separated from what you want to express – because to do that, you have to have a clear notion “in front of you”. If you “are” something very much – it is very difficult to speak about it.

Reminds me of my drea, “The guru in the corridor” where I can’t speak because my mouth is full.

Everything points to the golden core

Looking at Patti Agapi’s work “Front Facing”: Bringing together concepts that seemingly don’t belong together creates a deep connection. I believe that deep in their center all things are connected, everything points to the golden core.

Snow Blind

This video by Barbara Jaye Wilson about darkness strangely evokes an experience where I was nearly snow blind. I was on a wide field which was white from snow, no trees, the sky was white, too and that’s why there was no horizon. Strange experience. The light seemed to be very crude and stars danced in front of my eyes and united into one field where I could not see at all. I looked at my hands to see a different color.
