A while ago, I chose the rainbow, the idea of a full spectrum, as a symbol, a symbol of expanded vision. Of seeing more clearly. Like having many eyes. Maybe many kinds of eyes. And so today I was thinking of playing a little game each day. To collect and make a rainbow from things around me. To arrange them that way, to remind myself to look. As some symbolic gesture. And then, I thought. Wow. To expand vision, to suddenly find something not seen before, is simply to look. And look again. To assemble these moments together. To appreciate the natural order in that.
I realize more and more, the seemingly random order of things self discovered, is not that at all. It's just the way you choose to look at them at any given moment. Making sense of it all is just your point of view. Looking. Some of the pieces to a puzzle are hidden inside yourself. Some are out there. It's all one big space really. Converted into place.
The turquoise blue dot here was hammered into the silk cloth using a fresh Japanese indigo leaf cut into a circle. It started out bright green and slowly turned blue after rinsing and drying in the open air. V e r y s l o w l y. Nice. It fills in that empty space perfectly.
