The Pupil on Valentines

Original art by Judith Parsons Art 2016
The pupil. It has two meanings. The black center of the iris, where light enters the eye. And another meaning, the student, one who has been taught by a distinguished or famous person.

I am neither distinguished or famous. Maybe I will be after this blog. (Insert smile here.) However, this image was created when my beloved took the photograph of the sun setting at the end of her driveway.

You get one exquisite facet of the photograph, the silhouette of the trees, the mountain in the distant and the glorious horizon. If you look closely, you will see the female abstract shape in the tree. The hourglass shape is definite, she reaches her arms toward the heavens. SHE is all of us, as we wish to remain grounded, yet ache and desire the divine, which transcends this realm.

On Valentine’s Day, I wish for you this experience. To “see” through the eye of the younger student. I wish for you to transcend this realm and breathe in the sunset. Let the warmth of its golden light caress you, like that proverbial warmth of a blanket just out of the dryer. May you feel the love and see it in all.

Wishing you Dear friends Love on this Valentines Day.
