Holiday Greeting 2016 (PRESENTS::PRESENCE)
While gift boxes are certainly a viable subject, they imply a bit of the shallow commercialism that seizes us this beautiful time of year. And yet, they are so beautiful, so colorful, so magical, so playful. While working on them, I considered the notion of presents::presence. While each of us probably gave a few presents, and even received a few, the notion of PRESENCE is the quality that I aim for. I have noticed that most of the people I know and love are supremely capable of PRESENCE in the doing of what moves them. I guess we call it passion. And to be present in the moment, whether visiting with friends and family, or while pursuing our passions, is the gift I wish for all.....and for myself.
