Holding the Space

I have joined 35 other local artists for an art exhibit based on how we are spending our time during this pandemic. The show will open in a couple of weeks in Silver City, New Mexico, where I live. All of the art work must have been executed since March, 2020.I decided to create a wood sculpture that illustrates how mankind is dealing with the virus. It is titled Holding the Space and features three uplifted hands, each helping to keep the Covid-19 virus at bay. Each arm is made from a different pieces of wood, so there is white Arizona Cypress, brown Russian Olive, and black Walnut, representing people from around the world. The virus is oak with brass tacks and support rods. The piece stands about 5 1/2 feet high and is self-supporting. I finished the wood so that it could endure being left outside.

  1. I like you. BUT in medicine NO ONE did this when AIDS killed millions of children and infants. NO ONE did anything when swine flu killed a Texas couple or most DON”T do anything to boost medical discovery or science in ANY WAY. FOR 1 this virus has NO SCIENCE behind it nor does it’s protocols. EVERYTHING people are doing and BANDWAGON riding the “protocols” NO ONE has science to back up. It’s all wrong…there is no race medically and you don’t see anyone doing anything together in the world at all, if anything riots, murder and other political events of “race wars” are going on more than ever before. Friends are turning in friends to be arrested for curfew and NO MASK wearing but no medical professionals (NOT POLITICALLY PAID) are saying any of this is good AT ALL. Under the sun would have been accurate and if we advertise that all viruses, bacteria and other organisms LIVE in our gut walls and are activated…people would freak if they KNEW the science! I cannot support anyone who uses or sees color, politics, THIS VIRUS over child rape right now which hit an all time HIGH while kids are in lock down…I just can’t!

    • English and words are not my primary means of communication, please bear with me. I offer this to offer us all encouragement.

      Your thoughts and feelings are heard. This School of Life on Earth, into which we were all born, is challenging and overwhelming with all the many ways that the Shadow manifests. All facets of our collective shadows are insidiously interconnected in our daily lives.

      Our global collective shadow is forefront of human choices and behavior, wherever we are on the spectrum of consciousness. The global collective shadow is being healed.

      Each of us has our own part to play. Our own inner healing journey to continue. Most, if not all, of us who participate in this blog agree that we are individually and collectively part of the healing–that we are aspiring to be the change we are dreaming into being.

      In this shift of the ages, from the 1000’s into the 2000’s, unity consciousness prevails, step by step. whether on this timeline or another. THere are many timelines and healing going on.

      We were born into this time on earth, with its puss-filled sores of all sorts coming to a head. there is a great detox going on. Each of us is an important part of the healing.There are so many puss-filled sores that it is overwhelming to us.

      We take step by step to heal the whole.

      Even the machines and devices we use to communicate online and wirelessly contain many forms of blessings, Yet also the suffering of humans who mine the conflict minerals, etc.

      So perhaps even if we cannot help those individual humans being enslaved for the sake of conflict minerals, and other forms of slavery used to create these tools we use to change the world. We can keep moving forward in our personal healing, knowing that we are changing their lives when we change our inner healing. Each ripple of healing shifts the macrocosm.

      How do we heal our reliance on conflict minerals, which is prevalent worldwide? step by step.

      There is a great film named 2040.

      “Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

      Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.”
