I was going to keep this in draft to post while I am England but Sherilyn Cervantes' post Sometimes life is better from the inside looking out inspired me to post today instead.
Sherilyn....this is for you!!!
"Life Goes on"
With the break of each new day...Life goes on.
When unexpected comes your way...Life goes on.
As sunshine fades and darkness falls...Life goes on.
When earthly life hears deaths cold call...Life goes on.
Where peace and light and Love rule all...Life goes on!
- Valerie Sagheddu
Funny thing about my art sometimes...it often evolve in ways I don't intend. The spiral symbol has been used in almost every culture since the beginning of time and often represents the cycle of life, Resurrection... life, death and the continual momentum of both. I have always used spirals in my art to represent and infuse "LIFE". So last year I set out to create these spiral wall plaques and tree ornaments. I put the "Life goes on" really thinking about life after death and as a remembrance of those who have passed from this life to the next. After I made them though, I started to think about how we usually use this phrase to mean, no matter what you are experiencing in life...it goes on.
We all go through tough times but if by the grace of God we get through it...Life goes on.
...and if we don't...Life goes on!
