"Mirror to Mirror"

I attempted something similar in 2006, but then the large wall mirror was the second mirror.
This time I did not change pose, it is just what both mirrors showed.

"Morning Meditation"

Thoughts rising on a cold morning,
growing hope rising on a cold morning,
calming heart-center, as I breathe deeply.

That which is in my power to do,
may I have wisdom to see it through!

"Drawing of Horst"

Original on 11x14" paper, graphic pencil and marker, from life...

Our friends Horst and Margo will be moving soon. They are in their 90s and finding it hard to manage. So they will be living with one of their daughters, where they'll be very secure. We will miss them, but know it is a necessary move. Horst loves to tell stories, and I tried to capture him remembering happy times.

I found an article on the Yuma Sun of an interview with Horst back in 2005.)

"Morning Meditation II"

Of all the possibilities that lay before her, the unknown roads she could travel, perhaps there is one more than the others which is calling. She does not know which. Haunting whispers are calling to her, but she is confused. She closes her eyes that she might more clearly hear from where they are coming. It is the words, she can't quite make them out. Confusion! Does she freeze? Does the confusion cause her to stand at the crossroads immobilized?

And how long will the whispers call to her before they cease, opportunity gone with out given a chance?
