One day this summer




Stepping into
opaque pools of water

a soft hand beckoned
come and enjoy
the flow

gentle waters splashed
around my ankles

I was stirred by their
energies captivated
by the movement

as we began to swim
strong arms encircled me

I was held breathless

carried into seventh
heaven never having been
there before

as pools of water
engulfed me I was taught
to swim.

Art in Cornwall

 September - a trip to this lovely ancient town - St. Ives, in Cornwall, England. I happened upon this artist in his studio - John Emanuel. "Come in!" he shouted. And I did. I asked if I could come back later to take some photos in his whirlwind of a studio - art and colors and imagination everywhere.
He works in an enviable artists' building (see the view?) that was renovated renovated, thanks to a bevy of angels and a fund-raising group.
