what we carry.
lately as i've been transitioning, i've been thinking about the difference between what we carry within our hearts and what we carry within our minds. i wonder if there is truly a marked divide or if one landscape is just the extension of the other, if they pass meaning/thoughts/emotions like pieces of shared fruit.
the above work from artist and teacher alexi natchev is part of a large body of work, 'pages on the cobblestone' that opens tomorrow night at philly's gallery 309 & explores the complexities of both myth and a specific place in time. for me, i find comfort in the thought that our minds exist as places that can also hold the tremendous sea of the heart, that a specific place can hold the well of our being.
