From a deep well comes a certain longing. It is for a distant horizon, dimly remembered, portending a certain clarity. The striving for a transcendental, gives flesh and meaning to the concreteness of everyday reality. For the artist is always seeking something more, be it in a painting, a song, or a poem.
What is the aspiration of the artist? This question is as old as the hills, and as new as the as the latest blog post. Timeless in form, yet essential in delineation, the artist strives to enter into the conversation of life, the river of connection that daily engulfs our lives. Connection is key, for the moment dialogue is engaged, the artist enters into her element, and the creative flow arises naturally. This is a given.
Perhaps in this new year, 2015, we can assess the realities before us. A fact is still a fact, yet a dramatization can yield rich metaphors of meaning. Hence, a realm of poetry is entered, a landscape of vivid portrayal, giving fresh impetus to the artist’s innate desire to create. Yet, it is the conversation that gives meaning, the open knowledge that someone has seen our work, and that someone understands and appreciates it.
This is why, we at Lavender Turquois, curate the best, most interesting and liveliest of the vast offerings present to us in the WordPress domain. This is our calling, and we hope your enjoy our effort. For it is entering into the conversation, the element of mutual appreciation and dialog that comes with sincere effort, that is the true aspiration of the artist.

This is lovely.
Thank you for reblogging my post. That was very kind of you. =)
like the line “the artist enters into her element, and the creative flow arises naturally” – so true! I love it when I am so ‘in the zone’ that all sense of time and place or music playing in the background is ‘lost’ to me and I am just focused on creating – it’s a magical and special feeling
