“Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow.
Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others. Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them. Shadows. Projections. Our associations.
The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight.
The camera obscura.
Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down.”
“Emerson, I am trying to live, as you said we must, the examined life. But there are days I wish there was less in my head to examine, not to speak of the busy heart.”
“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy – in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.”
Infinite gratitude to all who participated in yesterday’s Creating Your Vision Workshop at Second Stage Studio provided by the gracious Joanne Vecchio! Special thanks Virginia Fitzgerald who created her sculpture “torqued and tethered . . .” and Katie Moorhead, whose thought-provoking movements beautifully transcended the day!
Mark your calendars now for a very special workshop to be held at the Attleboro Arts Museum on April 16!
