Sunkissed Shiva

I love this Shiva, dancing the dance of creation and destruction, in the process destroying ignorance and forgetfulness. To destroy forgetfulness suggests the strengthening of Self remembrance, as when Gurdjieff encourages us to "Remember Yourself."

Ah, but this picture has had a secret cropped from it:

Sunkissed Shiva dances on
ignorance, forgetfulness,
and thick gray dust.
She who forgot to dust
takes picture anyway.
