You are there…

Posted on 30 April 2010 by admin

There are times in your life when you just need an ‘x’ to mark the spot. It can be a rough time, when you need to remember that this will pass, it’s only a moment on your journey. Or it can be a happy time (like planning your wedding?) to remind you to pay attention to this moment.

My beloved friend Jeri (of the awesome apartment about which I will post someday) is an amazing artist. She uses photographs as sculpture is the best way I can succinctly describe it. Her work is moody, melancholy, evocative of still afternoons in quiet corners.

My point, and there is one, is that there are moments. I own a piece of Jeri’s art that I treasure deeply that does the reminding I was talking about. I pass it every day and it is always appropriate.

In case it’s not clear in the photo- the piece is cut-up photo letters, each word in its own chicken wire house, and it reads “you are there-x- as if for the first time”.
