Desire is the beginning of all creation. It is first thought. It is a grand feeling within the soul. It is God, choosing what to next to create. CwG Bk 1 pg. 65.
Does desire and thought dance together, in the form of mating to bring us to a place of creation? Mating with soul, co-joining with spirit to place a creation in the forefront of Being. Or is it a need to change, a movement toward evolving that causes something to be created? I am getting myself in a box here. The thoughts not clear enough to follow this through. As profound as I desired to be the creation of clear thought has not arrived.
I did not write yesterday because I was whisked away to a Gallery in Hammonton NJ to view art by members of Philadelphia Dumpster Divers at the Noyes Museum of Art. Kathleen chased me around facebook and email until we connected enough to make plans to meet and drive the 20 miles to take in this collection and meet some of the members of this mix-media artist group.
This collection as a fun artistic example of how to be creative with found object, recycled items from home or dumpsters. From giant mobiles made of strung together plastic bottle caps, to old soda creates made into storage units with plexiglass fronts and pulls made of tiny spoons, there was a large piece made with pennies and colored tiles in to a mosaic Lincoln. Just to mention a few of the pieces, that where inspiring and thoughtful.
When we reached our destination of Hammonton and the Gallery we were informed that the town was having Green Day, a street festival, to gather together the groups and organizations that are helping to improve on the way we interact with mother earth. So Kath an I walked the two blocks over, all the while commenting on the state of the town, that on Sunday morning it was peaceful, the streets were clean, the percentage of buildings well-kept.
The Green Day Fair was a nice little event, we spoke to a few people, I took some photos, and we went back to the gallery to meet some of the artist, they did wander in, chatted, and they chose to go the Green Fair too, thinking more guest would arrive. So we moved on, walked on the main street, Bellview ave, coffee shops, pastry shops, upscale restaurants, a few pizza and chinese, among the other assorted stores one would find in a downtown. The most awesome place was a corner block storefront that has be renovated and well-kept in is glory. I found some other little treasures to photograph on our stroll.
That is my tour for the day, be back tomorrow to keep you all informed.
Growth Question: How do you reuse, recycle, reinterpret found objects?
