I Love You

So, where do I go from here?
mixed media

I have been doing a lot of writing, in my head. Composing wonderful internal conversations, that stagnate in my brain. Today I decided to give the conversation a page to rest upon.

Eternity is in love with the creations of time. William Blake

That uber intelligence that is all , loves us  because we have the ability to make their genius real. It's a sublime, symbiotic relationship. They are the muse, we are the vessel and together we create wonderful works of art, music, literature, architecture, gardens, delicious dishes, sublime wines, all the "things" that make our life in this dimension, wonderful and amazing. Without us, Eternity's genius would be swirling around the Universe,without form, just an idea, just a thought.

So this morning, my muse whispered me awake with the words, "I love you". Those three little words take up such a small space on the page, but oh my lord, they take up a universe of feeling. The expansiveness of the phrase, I love you. Can you feel it? How it makes you larger than your mere human frame and embraces you in a womb of wonder.

To answer Blake, I would say;
The creations of time are in love with Eternity. 

Since we  have a beginning and an end, Eternity allows us to live on, either through our works or through those we give birth to. So it's important to show up. To open up and only then, can Eternity  flow through us and make our genius real.
