Saturation of the Soul
I get it when an artist has great technique, gifted hand, and good eye. However, when I'm really pulled in by a work of art, it's because they have all that plus soul. They create something more than art. They create a feeling that, in its resonance, causes a trembling within.
I feel that in me when I'm in creative mode, and yet, I’m not sure how to live within that kind of passion full time. Do I even have the chutzpah to do so? I think so, I hope so. Intrepid behavior does tend to rule my day. I know this... I’m not in deep enough yet. I only know I’m on my way.
This is what I am thinking as I watch the rain pour down. Saturation of the soul, my friends, saturation of the soul... and the passion that comes with wringing out every bit of it. There's a rather whimsical smile on my face when I think that I was once afraid of this stuff. Now that I've passed the Rubicon, I no longer fear drowning in it.
