An old piece of clay.

“You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands. Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it.” ~ John Updike

    That is an exquisite image, Paulann. Can you tell us more about it?

      Thank you, Carol. I was at a conference a few years ago in Memphis. The Memphis Music and Heritage Festival opened the weekend I was there. The fall weather was great, so I had fun walking, taking pictures, and enjoying the variety of music.

      If I remember correctly, the artist was creating clay masks of individuals. I actually have another shot that includes the girl who was the model/buyer at that moment. I enjoyed watching his hands shape the clay.

    It is said each time we sit in meditation our intentions go around the world. We are not an island, we are connected to all people and things, well I believe this.

    The ego part of us we know now, can be reformed just like this clay. Starve negative with lack,of attention, focus all attention on now and how you are perfect. It will take care of the rest.

    Thanks Paulann

      I like the idea of our intentions going around the world. I agree with you that we are connected to our world and all that is in it. Isn’t it nice, and hopeful, that we are still malleable, like clay? Thanks, Marty, for reading and sharing your thoughts.
