An Unfinished Life

Posted by Rosie Huart on June 17, 2014 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)

 



“I believe art is foremost for the artist who creates it. You do it for your soul, and if the rest of the world gets something from it, that's a bonus.”  Marion Boddy-Evans


The above piece was selected for the cover of "Presence Journal," a publication for Spiritual Directors International.  It is titled "An Unfinished Life."  It was a piece I did in memory of a friend who died while in his youth.  The poem I wrote and read at his eulogy.

GREAT NEWS

Along with my friends Trish McKinney and Karen Benedetti, we were able

to accomplish raising funds for the Brandon Haskins Art Memorial Scholarship

in his beloved memory.  Before the 2nd anniversary of his death, $20,000 was

raised towards this endeavor.  We are so grateful for this accomplishment.

Hafiz Poem

Posted by Rosie Huart on June 16, 2014 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Do you know how beautiful you are?

Saints bowing in the Mountains

Do you know how beautiful you are?

I think not, my dear.

For as you talk of God,

I see great parades with wildly colorful bands

Streaming from your mind and heart,

Carrying wonderful and secret messages

To every corner of this world.

I see saints bowing in the mountains

Hundreds of miles away

To the wonder of sounds

That break into light

From your most common words.

Speak to me of your mother,

Your cousins and your friends.

Tell me of squirrels and birds you know.

Awaken your legion of nightingales—

Let them soar wild and free in the sky.

And begin to sing to God.

Let’s all begin to sing to God!

Do you know how beautiful you are?

I think not, my dear,

Yet Hafiz

Could set you upon a Stage

And worship you forever!

-Hafiz

 

Mercues Hotel in Cahors, France

Posted by Rosie Huart on June 16, 2014 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (1)

This is where we stayed the first night in France.  What a glorious old 12th Century castle in Cahors.  It was a retreat home for the Bishop of Cahors who later became a pope.

We hope to be staying at this beautiful castle again in 2016.

You Are Worth the Time

I came across this video below and feel compelled to put it on my blog.  It is so resonance of the spirit within so many artists.  I hope you enjoy the words and images.  Jan Phillips is the author and you can view her website at janphillips.com.  At our gallery's art talk tonight I introduced the video to a very enthusiastic group.  Phillips is also the author of several books.
