Authenticity

S

As usual I don’t know where I’m going or why. 

A

Where does our clay take us?

S

Mason stains onto wet clay. A way to explore getting vibrancy with color. But I’m not sure that’s all I want. It’s a part of it. I’m not sure at all where this is headed. I’ve been exploring different clay bodies and what they give me. Now I want to add to that. Not subtract—not move away from—but add onto.

But what to add—and how to add it? I have no idea. 

A

We are shifting, growing, exploring. 

S

Yes. 

A

We are…healing. 

S

Yes. 

A

With art. 

S

Yes. 

A

With words. 

S

Yes. 

A

In clay. 

S

Yes.

A

And?

S

Is this only about healing or is there more? Is it just growth—as an artist or human being in general? Does everything here need to be in the context of healing? 

A

It does not. It was an unconscious desire to heal that sparked this meditation but we need not remain forever framing our life’s journeying this way.
