Finding Your Center

Finding Your Center

With the New Year comes resolutions, intentions, goals and reflections, and not necessarily, in that order.

There is something about the circle that has surfaced in my work over the years- targets, cells, bubbles, sometimes as a void, other times creating a pattern.

Here, the word Index rests in the midst of a burned out circle, with air bubbles embedded in the book pages and heavy waxed surface.  When I now look at this earlier piece I see it as a reminder that whatever my goals and ambitions are for the New Year, the way to navigate through the pages of my life is to stay centered, through meditation, yoga, and a regular studio practice.

For my husband Scott, his grounding is on the squash court; smashing that little ball for hours. He claims “the love of the game pales in comparison to the love of his wife” (who’s he kidding.)  I do know however, that when he is done, having ran all his opponents into the ground, dripping with sweat, and yes, then showered, he is one happy centered camper- and a great husband and partner.

So, how do you find your center?

Whatever that is, Wishing you a very happy, healthy, creative, and inspired 2015.
