I experimented and worked with my pomegranate over a six week period. Before each art making session, I set my pomegranate on the table. It remained on the peripheral … waiting to be included. It remained in a state of waiting until it was finally incorporated the very last moment of my last session on May 11. It simply asked to be suspended with a golden cord.
To follow are intention and witness writings from my art making over the course of the six week period. They track this sacred journey and carved the way to the final witness recorded above. My deepest thanks to Pat Allen and the other women who participated in this project. I felt each of you with me and was deeply comforted in knowing that you were fellow travelers on this sacred journey.
All life is a beginning. I need an open, spontaneous, joyful attitude that knows it does not know. I need an emptiness in me … I need to find the part in my soul still empty, still able to be surprised, still open to wonder.
-- Christin Lore Weber, The Finding Stone
I am empty. I am open to wonder and surprise.
I do no harm and receive no harm.
