We were all new beings once.
And while our practices of yoga, meditation and tai chi teach us to find a beginner’s mind, we are only truly new once. We only see something for the first time once.
I love the wonder, amazement and mesmerized look you can see on the face of child when they fix on something for the first time.
A breathtaking vista.
A seemingly impossible feat.
A piece of art.
What is sparking in their minds? What light is coming on?
So it’s particularly exciting to see what new eyes capture.
Saturday, Just B Yoga is opening the studio to be used by dear friends for their daughter Brigid to display her art.
She’s the daughter of Steve and Chela Ashley, owners of Green Eagle Farm in Onondaga.
Brigid has unrestricted access to open air and fields and sky – more than any typical urban teen today.
We could call her a free-range teenager.
And the result of nature nurturing her is clear in her art.
She has a playful attitude in her shots with a natural background that shows us how free our spirits all once were.
Please take some time to drop by the studio between 3 and 7 p.m. Dec. 7 and support a young lady who’s putting herself out there in a vulnerable way.
She’s willing to show us how she sees the world.
I hope our community will come out to show her how we see her art and her heart – beautiful!
Below are three pieces that will be part of the art exhibit tomorrow. Come see the whole exhibit.
