Creating Art
By Dale Leffler

Inspiration piece

A poem or piece of art makes us stop. …suspend time for just a little bit.
It opens us up to see and hear differently than normal.
It opens a space of inquiry, curiosity or wonder
to what it might mean or say or feel.

It is kind of like High – Definition listening or seeing
sensing for the minutest of  details that would expose us to
all kinds of meanings in 3D. Physical , psychological, emotional.

Like  a construction site, cleared of past rubble, dug deep and square where there is nothing yet.
The whole for the foundation is not set in straight rigid stone edges,
it is more akin to a place that is to receive large timbers  for an Adobe hut
with its’ loose mortar rounded corners, and gently sloping curves that run into one another.
The plaster mud sets up after a while, making imperfect doorways and windows ways that work in letting the light of understanding flow throughout the structure and casting shadows of recognition across the floor and onto the hard-pack patio where artist and appreciator sip white wine with out very many words but are finally connected through their mutual act of creation.

    “Like a construction site, cleared of past rubble, dug deep and square where there is nothing yet.” What a lovely image for the things we do with our writing and reading!
