Wild & Magical Things

"You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life." -Mary Oliver

Happy Saturday! Today: a finished piece inspired by poet Mary Oliver, whose whimsical words never cease to inspire me. There are some artists who show us that beauty is powerful (not powerful over anything, just 'powerful' as in a force to be reckoned with), and I love that.
The best beauty, I think, is like that. It's strong. It supports itself; it proves itself by not needing to prove itself; by simply being. Nature's beauty is like that, the beauty of grace is like that, soul-level beauty, inner beauty, is like that: beautiful because they feel like indestructible truth.
