“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.”
― Max Ehrmann

Camp Log Day Three
Hope everyone is having a fabulous labour day weekend.
Clear starry sky, crackling camp fire and a light breeze blowing smoke directly into your eyes – does life get any better than this? Gawd, I hope so.
Sleepy baby close your eyes
Stars are singing lullabies
Moon is shining magic beams
Night is sending happy dreams
Sleep is a boat in a moonlit bay
Close your eyes and sail away

We all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun.

Sun/Moon Art is fascinating. Second only to my love of all things African, these delightful works of art fill me with comfort and serenity – peaceful easy feelings. My African art does this too, but I have no idea how to describe to someone else how carvings of elephants and giraffes, paintings of beautiful black women dancing, and crazy scary tribal masks can inspire peace and joy. For me they just do.
It will be difficult explaining the sun/moon/stars thing too. But I’ll try. When someone is miles away, it’s nice to know we are still under the same sky, gazing at the same small glimpse of heaven. The sun and the moon and the stars belong to everybody. Or to no one at all. We may be quite different, but we are each tiny parts making up this vast universe. We all shine.
Maybe we look at the sun, moon and stars with a longing to return from whence we came. Or it’s simply the yin/yang day/night balance that is pleasing, or the beautiful colors or the symmetry that draw us in.
Explaining art is like trying to work out exactly why a joke is funny. Some things are inexplicable and best just happily embraced for whatever emotions they may uncover. I wish you peace, how ever you may find it.

“Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born: – you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.” – E.E. Cummings
