Rumi, Tate St Ives and The Moon

13 Dec

Many of us are reeling after our general election.   As one friend we serendipitously  met in St Ives today said, “We all need some time for convalescence.” Like us, J had gone to the sea to help with recovery. We also visited Tate St Ives to touch those bits of our souls and hearts that need extra care right now.
We have to hold on to hope.

It was such a wild day, gusts of wind of 60mph and driving rain – pathetic fallacy at its best.

We love The Tate and I will show you tomorrow some of the wonderful Otobong Nkanga’s exhibition. For now, one of my favourite paintings.

About to drive away from the carpark after a meeting with the fabulous artists from Fannie and Fox, the moon appeared over the roof tops. It was a full moon yesterday and this was just beautiful to see.

December’s full moon

    You know the ways to treat your hurting spirits–art and nature. Much love to you and the lovely Mr. S.

    Politics and the players are much like the circus …. eventually they pull down the tent and leave town.
    As long as politicians are not taking us to war, things will be more or less the same, as fr the English they’ll be back to talking about the weather and drinking tea!

      You are right about politicians. One thing though, you never know when they are taking you to war. Or if you know, the media helps them to get you into a frenzy

    Truly beautiful post. The natural world is a source of beauty and wonder. We must look after it. The human condition is such that our innate fickleness can lead us to betray nature. Our prejudices mislead us too easily. X
