    Speaking of the universal broken heart, el corazon...Snow White, Frida and others... I thought it a coincidence that this just came to me via a newly-minted PhD living in California, since I have had Frida Kahlo on my mind lately.
    And in view of the post above about sorrows learning to swim...

    On the theme of "start 'em young" - here's a one-year-eleven-month-old at my paint table (where once I wrote, but now I craft other images).

    This song is a LITTLE heavy... but well worth it if you have a box of tissues nearby.



    And art too bc this thread dusts me off every day.

    The song is lovely, Fanna. It is an honouring of our loved ones as they move on. Thank you.

    SIGIL OF THE COSMOS

    This sign uses motifs from folk art depictions of the 'tree of life' to express core IndoEuropean Pagan concepts.

    The Wheel is the sign of the Sky Powers, the turning, eternal order of the heavens. It is the sign of many sky gods, of the Thunderers, and of the Sun, Moon and Stars.

    The Hall of Lugh is the pattern of the Great Hall of the Gods, the symbol of the quartering of the world, of the establishment of the Middle World.

    The Spiral is the sign of the Underworld Powers, the flowing, unshaped potential of all being. It is the sign of the goddesses of waters, of the whirlpool, of the Deeps.

    Together, these signs affirm the Order of the Worlds, a protection from ill and an affirmation of blessing.

    Does this count as art?
    It is using consciousness with artistic license, with gay abandon, hopefully with a flourish of fun...

    Of course it counts. Humor is an art form all its own

    Not quite professional, but hikes with friends also wash away the dust.
