I wrote to Maria Wulf (fullmoonfiberart.com) for permission to share her post which drew my attention. It is such a deep pleasure for one like me to share the larger picture when our thoughts merge.
There is a connection in the soul that has no word coming to mind, describing
what happens when an Other draws a picture connecting minds albeit artistic.
The feeling of isolation falls away and there is the feeling of community that persists. It is a connectedness that shows what no longer divides us but what unites all of us in the enhancement of life.
With so much talk of individual effort and not needing others, one wonders how long human life can endure without the virtual humanity of even a mental hug.
Proving to me again, even in a cyber age, the connection in the larger composition of life, of a cardinal in a bare tree. Carried further, the song of the cardinal is heard by the blue boy with his mother walking and the song acknowledged.
That loves, is life’s connectedness. And what will endure.

Maria, many years ago when I wrote ‘the last bird sings’ my card for the holidays was a cardinal in a bare tree. I never used it because I kept seeing the bare tree as an evergreen. But what I drew was a version of your cardinal in a bare tree, skeleton tree with no leaves. My title for the drawing was ‘even the cardinal wears the bare tree in elegance’.
When I saw your photo, the caption of my drawing came to mind. It seems my head is full of what people don’t want to know. Just ask my family! love you, veronica
What beautiful and perfect words for that image Veronica, yours and mine. It’s so interesting how that happens, that you had one image in your head but drew another. As if you needed that image to get to the words. And I want to hear your words Veronica. The mark of a true mystic is people not wanting to know what you have to say, but you say it anyway.
