Counting the Omer: Days 40-41

<>Day 40

<>Hod shebe Yesod

<>Text:
how to be whole how to be whole_in a broken world_a jigsaw world of broken connections_alliances promises loyalties hopes bodies
even when we touch we can be so far away
day 40 splendor theory order
in
the foundation of righteousness
hod shebe yesod
It is hard to tend to art when there are bread and butter needs
how to bring art and justice into every day life
how to live a whole life_how to tend to work_how to find sustaining work that doesn’t take away from who I am_doesn’t strip away at my essential tasks _essential self
how to be whole in a broken body
being right doesn’t put food on the table_being right doesn’t make house; home
<>Day 41

<> yesod shebe yesod
the foundation of righteousness in the foundation of righteousness

Counting the Omer: Day 39

Text:_39 days_five weeks 4 days of the omer
netzach within yesod
creativity endurance inspiration
within
the foundation of righteousness
paradise is what we create_a tapestry of fine thread and delicate fiber_a garden of luscious fruit_libraries of ancient texts_and new ideas_stories told at the rim of campfires
mountain springs of crystal clean water
the dance of children_the rainbow of paint_on_cascades of the canvas
flute_piano_cello_ a harmony of collective vision imagery

Did the clown say to you yesterday that he loves the work of Frida….. well, don’t believe him… its me who used to have some of her paintings…. he stole them…. and now claims to people that he had gone through them…. I loved your posts._Posted by other-clowns on 05/23/2006 01:58:06 PM
Oh! My wretched ol’ alter ego, spreading all the wrong rumours about me…. trust me, Emma, I really used to have her paintings myself….. and had nothing to do this other clown._Posted by clown on 05/23/2006 02:01:41 PM
Hah! Don’t worry mate, she won’t believe you._Posted by other-clowns on 05/23/2006 02:04:07 PM

Counting the Omer: day 38


38 days of omer

Text_38 days of the omer
five weeks 3 days of the omer
beauty balance harmony
in
the foundation of righteousness
if i were a tree i would want to be an aspen connected deep within the ground to all the others _a community of breath and depth
beauty without foundation is vanity façade illusion fleeting disconnected unreal commodity
all that is real is what exists between us the distance we bridge to connect
the bridge_the wire_the strand_the beat_the hope _the wisper_the idea_the memory_touch_kiss_breath_depth_embrace
it’s a busy world we don’t seem to have time for each other_truth_what lies beneath the surface

I found your blog today….. it’s strange considering the fact that you’ve been posting for a long time now…. it’s even stranger considering how religiously I follow the blog directory from time to time…. Anyways, loved your posts…. stepped back, went right to the beginning and started reading from the introduction…. kept reading until I reached here…. that’s when, I guess, I realized that I must put a comment ….. Once upon a time, I used to get my eyes drenched and my heart trenched in Frida’s work…. it was like a reincarnation to me….. will definitely return to this terrible white canvas of yours for YOUR future posts…. smile. _Posted by clown on 05/22/2006 02:51:19 AM

Day 37

Day 37_limits boundaries discipline strength within foundation righteousness _gevurah shebe yesod
forgiven unforgiven forgiven unforgiven forgiven unforgiven forgiven
until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream –MLK
is the lie more real than the truth?
the earth is moving beneath me _if i wish upon a cloud will the rains come?  _will the desert bloom?  _will the rivers run clean and free again?  _I am waiting for redemption, justice, thunderclouds_roots dig in for a long battle against the integrity of ordinary seeds
