The Still Point of the Turning World……March 6.2014.

 

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;

Neither  from nor toward; at the still point, there the dance is,

But neither  arrest nor movement.  And do not call it fixity,

Where past and future are gathered. Neither Movement

from nor towards,

Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

T.S.Elliott

Who supports your daily life?

I am  so very  grateful for the support in my life, friends, family and community. All are profound gifts of Love and contribute to my ability to create.

What supports my daily life?

Something from deep inside that has always been there, a part of me, that quests, wonders, is amazed at times, scared at times, in awe at times,in delight.  As time goes on, I experience all of that fully; the feelings, the thoughts the sorting it all out.

Then, ultimately, there is the sublime still point of the turning world.

Peace.

    Callahan, I can feel that in you–that part of you that has always been there, the part that greets me and shares your deep felt experiences. Love you, your images, and thanks for T. S. Eliot!
