Endings …….

Yesterday I took my work down to the OCA office in Barnsley for assessment.  Two years of work in the back of my car.  After 12 years with OCA, slowly working my way courses I have finished my degree and am left with a mix of feelings – sadness, a sense of achievement and a recognition of a need to let go.   I am looking forwards to a couple of months of rest as autumn moves to winter and a curiosity to see what is waiting to emerge as I continue forwards as an artist.

Letting Go

The is such delight

In the stillness of winter.

A time to be honoured,

A time of renewal.

Do we let ourselves dance

To the rhythm of our being.

To touch and know

That this is enough,

This is what I choose.
