The End

The Beginning

In the spirit of transitions, I’m sharing my art that speaks to endings with hope toward a new beginning, as well as prose that inspire.

Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on midnoon, and under every deep a lower deep opensEmerson

…What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start … TS Eliot Four Quartets 4: Little Gidding

New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings Lao Tzu

From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Does moving really mean moving?

my way, mixed medium by LLGriffin

I grew up on Linn St.
As a kid I thought I’d move to a big city. I’ve, in fact moved to a few states and cities over time. I eventually landed in a different state and city is bigger than the one I’m from.
Now, I live one block east of Linn St.

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. T. S. Eliot

Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth, that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on mid-noon, and under every deep a lower deep opens. Ralph Waldo Emerson 1802-1882

(about the image above, it’s inspired by the practice enso. I approach it as a meditation)
