I am an artist and a pilgrim

I am an artist and a pilgrim.

 

I am an artist and a pilgrim.

I stand at the divide.

One moment creating,

one moment exploring.

 

Every second, every day

I am creating anew.

New thoughts,

new sights,

new experiences.

Tangible, real, alive.

Real life in the here and now

 

Every second, every day

I feel a tug

to explore

the hidden depths of

all that is unknown

from whence, I emerged

so long ago.

A world I come from but know not of.

 

I am an artist and a pilgrim.

I stand at the divide.

One moment creating,

one moment exploring.

 

My heart lies here,

my soul lies there.

I live on the boundary of a fault,

where two plates try to displace another.

 

I am an artist and a pilgrim.

Most of my father’s family lived in California. When I was young, we went out to visit them.  I will never forget seeing the San Andreas Fault.  I was fascinated by the fact that you could actually see the fault line but not the invisible forces deep below.  These vast continental plates are shifting and moving against each other continuously.  My aunt and uncle lived in Santa Cruz when the 1989 earthquake struck in the mountains of Santa Cruz.  They lost much in damage.
