Week 1 - Brotherly Love - Love of Humanity

Reaching Out

I was thinking the other day that it would be helpful to concentrate on a simple concept every week for my life but also incorporate it into my art.   I decided to sit down and write some words - for example, love, light, gratitude, harmony etc.    I thought it would be great if I could think of 52 words and work on one each week for the next year.   I didn't think I would be able to think of 52 but it was easier than I thought!   I actually could of kept going.   Just thinking of the words and writing them down was extremely cathartic - I would highly recommend it.   Anyway I wrote them down on little pieces of paper and threw them in a box.  Monday started week one and I just put my hand in and pulled out "Brotherly Love"   I had written on the back "Love of Humanity"

So this is what I am trying to keep in my heart and mind and art this week.   I am contemplating what it really means.   I figure that in the beautiful magic of this world --this life-- that my lessons will meet me - they always seem to when I beckon.
