Represents the seasons of change.the beauty in everyday life and the joy to be found in simple things like flowers that are all around you constantly changing day to day.the life cycle...germination...life cycle and.. the enriching of everyone who gets to engage in this process..joyfullness
Time, love and connection.
These are what matter most.
Special holidays and dying highlight this to us,
But it's true anytime of the year and at any stage of life.
Blessed are the people who have, live and give
Because everything else darkens
Even death itself.
Transience and Beauty
By Katishe Grudnoff
For several years I worked as an art therapist in aged care, sitting with people in the final chapter of their life, listening to stories and reflecting on what matters most. I learnt so much. My greatest lessons were taught to me by sitting with people with dementia. It was about the fleeting nature of life, embracing the moment, savouring a good cup of tea, just being with. So, for me, that is what matters most. This is a portrait, a reminder of the transience and beauty of life.
Wonderful memories with Pa at the beach
By Adèle Lingard
I took this photo of my grandson with his Pa , enjoying having a ride on his shoulders . I then went ahead & painted this image. We are retired at Port Macquarie & enjoy having the grand children stay over the school Holidays . We live close to the beach & so spend most of the time playing there. I am a volunteer & work at the Palliative care unit at Wauchope as a therapist in the arts. I am very much into providing Memories.
My world of holiday memories
HOLIDAYS- More time to explore new places, share new experiences, relax with family and friends. A time of building relationships and memories. This book art represents my world, a life time full of holiday memories. It is personal, held tightly by my beloved but on display to be shared. My life against the inevitability of death. My life of shared experiences to be treasured in the present and reminisced in the future. An encouragement to live well, share life, know love, treasure memories for our time is short.
