Since 2009 when I began this blog I've been 'following the silver thread', which for me means subtly putting myself out of my own comfort zone to explore what I might not otherwise explore, and in turn, unearthing those parts of myself that have been waiting patiently to awaken.

As an artist and a sensitive human I often times get 'directives', subtle phrases or images that inspire the beginning of a work idea or simply cause me to pause and think on a subtle, yet deeper level. "follow the silver thread" was a phrase that popped in my mind one morning as I was sitting quietly. Hmm, I thought, how interesting, and what does it mean?

Silver, apparently is symbolic of a number of things:

Single-ness of Purpose

It's a subtle strength because it can withstand all sorts of 'abuse', including weathering and even heat, yet it can still be molded into desired forms.

I like the message that we ourselves can be flexible enough to be molded into something better, but strong enough to keep our core integrity in tact.

So, I'm following the silver thread of my own life, and this blog is part of that. I hope that the postings and photos you see here will somehow inspire you to follow your own.
