Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all
And sweetest is the gale is heard; and sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm...

I love perspective(s).
Whether it be from another persons mouth, or a drawing showing someones point of view.
They are learning tools...art...art of life.

I have learned that listening is an art of life too.
I love to listen.
Even when I really want to say something, I will stop and listen first.
I have learned so many wonderful, and interesting things by listening.
It has made me a better person....calmer...more insightful.

Just like physical art, there are emotional arts to be mastered as well.
Listening, watching, being open minded and clear.
There is something to be learned from everyone...from every situation.
I was always an "artistic" type of gal. Much more than analytical or logical.
I like organized chaos...I like feeling my way through things and cataloguing it all in my own mind so that when I need to come back to it later in life I can.

Kannon has been suffering from head pains the past few weeks.
We are going to the doctor tomorrow.
I hope it is just a simple headache, but he is in pain...and there is no bump there.
So, it must be inside his beautiful head where he hurts....
I have to hope his complex, artistic mind is not hurting in a real biological way.

His mind is art to me. I hope he is not in pain...I hope.
He shows me the most beautiful pictures every day with his drawings...actions...motions.
He has become like living art to me.
I have had to observe him like a sculpture of sort...watch him...admire him...question him...listen to him.
Listen to him without judgement or frustration.

I do it every day and still think he is the most beautiful creation ever.

He is my best art project.

I am an artist :)
I made Kannon.
But if you do have a moment will you say a prayer for my little man...that this is all nothing.

peace :)
