Writing about the magical heaven and earth qualities about mosaics.

Here are some quotations with which I resonate:

“There are few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.” Anias Nin

As Mother Teresa said, “If I look at the mass, I will never act.  If I look at the one, I will.” (Williams, 284)- I am relating this quotation to the process of being daunted looking at a large blank wall, and then one tessearaImage at a time art emerges and the wall is covered…..

Mosaics can be a metaphor for many things.  Mosaics are seeds.  Mosaics are memories.  Mosaics are bones.  Mosaics are light. Mosaics are stories.  Mosaics are dreams.  Mosaic making is an art that can provide space and order to re-create.- me
