Spread #40- On The Map February 19, 2009Posted by Orly in Spreads.
This week…big celebrations…it’s my 40th entry on my blog…and it’s my 50th birthday. Don’t even think that they are not connected. They are! I was always wondering why people getting older feel strange about disclosing their age, since I never did. Well I know now. The ‘bigger’ I get…the ‘bigger’ I get…Yes, it does make sense. As I get older I am becoming the woman I always dreamed of becoming. I find plenty of beauty these days, inside of me, in previously murky places. The blog is a huge part of it. Through it I come closer and closer to recognizing and realizing my true desires, and, as a result, the desires of others. Through the blog, I returned to art as my spiritual practice, to people of this world as my fellow heart-mind-spirit-globe-trotters, and last but not at all least, to my handsome husband and children as the compass for the directions I need to follow. When I started this blog eight months ago, little did I know that my mantra ‘When I open my eyes I see paradise’ would actually become my new nature. My 50 years brought me here. How can I not say it proudly? This art today represents dirt roads and fanciful paths, lost and found ways…my innumerable maps.
