A work in progress

‘RedHead’, originally uploaded by demelza fey.

We are none of us finished. We are perpetually moving forward, changing, growing, expanding, shrinking. As time marches forward I realize we can outgrow people as easily as we once fit into them. And this makes sense of all the people left behind, parts of myself included.

“The soul has illusions as the bird has wings: it is supported by them.” – Victor Hugo

I feel twinges of regret, lamenting all that has come and all that has gone. I’ve forgotten faces and whole chapters of books I once loved. And yet, this morning, I know for each space left behind an invitation is sent out into the world for something new to fill it. And I am overcome with hope.

Something in the way she moves by James Taylor

This song brings me to a happy place!

    Looks like you are going to have a beautiful piece upon completion. Digging the attention to detail in the textures of the hair. Also, whomsoever designed the two crow symbol used at the header of posts is either a genius in the use of negative space or possibly created the most astounding accidental imagery I have seen. Found your site through searching to see what the title was of the Adele song in The Other Woman and must say it is fantastic. Thank you.

    Oh. I did not draw or paint that… the artist is posted on it. =)
