As usual I am trying to decide what to say here about the making of these four blocks. Everything I think to say feels like it is not enough or at the very least, not quite the depth that I have been feeling in my heart these days.
Words can escape us and maybe that's it right there. Life, the seasons life throws at us sometimes have no words. Just moments. Moments where we stand being burned, refurbished, revealed of who we really are deep within our core. The place that nobody can see. Not even ourselves at times.
Each one of these blocks represents these moments. Whether they are brief moments or longer lengths of time we all experience them.
The darkness of night where we don't know where or how to reach the light but we know its there.
The luxury of life when things could not get any better, a time full of warmth, color, and happiness.
The place we have where we are completely safe and at peace. A place where nothing can reach us and we can be completely ourselves.
And finally, a place where we experience great change, loss, where things are just out of our hands and we must relent to the change despite our greatest efforts to stop it or hold our ground as it had been.
Whichever we experience it seems to change like the seasons. We know it can and will happen and often we know it's coming. Sometimes these seasons catch us unawares. The good we love, the darkness we endure and somehow we are all beautiful on our way through this life.
