OK, Friends and Neighbors, let’s see what happens when I take
(except that I made holes in the tarp)
I’m not hearing any breaking sound!
Maybe I should check… hmmm…. the wrapped-up package feels like…
Maybe I should unwrap it now to see what has happened…
Some use clear fractured glass to adhere over paintings or old photos or prints and such. Some use small pieces to add texture to the surface of decorative objects in an appealing way.
Me? It is tempting to see the fractures as metaphor for the broken parts of life: our private lives, our lives in community, or relationship to the world and, indeed, the whole universe.
The fractured pieces are also beautiful, like natural crystals which glisten in the light.
Some of these will become a part of my next mosaic.
