Spread # 104- Soul Bird July 25, 2010

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Deep inside me lives my ‘soul bird’ (a Hebrew phrase). ‘She’ constantly reminds me of my boundlessness and I am glad she does, cause I tend to forget. My soul bird is my art. She is my window through which I see farther than my own words and worlds, the opening through which I feel my freedom, loudly, clearly, and oh so sweetly. At times my soul bird flies out and brings with her visitors back to my soul, to ease my casual loneliness. My soul bird is majestic.

Your soul bird is also full of poetery!

Ah – such a poetic way to say that art expands our possibilities! Makes our world bigger! Invites in ways of seeing that just didn’t exist to us BEFORE we communed with our art, our soul birds, our inherent, deeper/wider/higher connection.
You ARE a light. You ARE a soul bird. And we all see more because of you.

Your profound, beautiful and poetic Soul Bird is wonderful and wild. Thank you for making sooo many aware of their own personal “Soul Birds” and setting them aloft and free. You touch many souls!

Dear Orly-I picked up the Sommerset Art Journaling mag and your work is fantastic! Congrats! I know this is not the first time your work has been published but I bet it’s a thrill every time!! I loved all your practical tips and techniques. They really speak of capturing/recording the essence of the place, the person and time and space. I only wish I had known some of these techniques on my past travels! You are so inspiring…and your posts …thought-provoking. I especially love the “empty” post below…In Buddhism…become empty.

how lucky for your 14 year old son to get to go to Japan– I was a lot older by the time I got to go…
love the ‘soul bird’ in you– so creative and artful.

‘soul bird’ is a brilliant phrase – i’m going to start using it! i love how you always get me thinking about something soulful when i come to visit.

Dear Orly, your soul bird has flown over
and given me your message.
Art is boundless.
The window is open.
We are all here for eachother
for an artist can be lonely.
You are majestic!
(at home at last)

Your soul bird is finding refuge here…I am sorting through ideas of time and sacred spaces. The idea of a soul bird resonates deeply with this idea.

thank you for giving my thoughts new wings.
