After a forced leave of absence due to injury, Hayley was back in the studio last week for the first time, and we were very excited to be back working on our Monochopsis Project; So many wonderful metaphors, quotes, and ideas still to work with;
A Single Candle
“Look how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness” – Anne Frank
The Stars Make Me Dream
“Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight,. I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.” – The Dorling Kindersley Book of Nursery Rhymes
“Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high. Like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle little star.” – Mozart
“Starry, Starry night
Paint your palette blue and greyLook out on a summer’s day
With eyes that know the
Darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodilsCatch the breeze and the winter chillsIn colors on the snowy linen land.”~ Don McLean
The Book of Life
“The world keeps spinning, and the tales keep turning, and people come and people go, but they’re never forgotten. And the one truth we know, it held true one more time… That love, true love, the really, really good kind of love never dies.” – La Muerte (from the movie The Book if Life)
A Light in the Dark
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” ― Roy T. Bennett
The images are dark and moody and oft times the message is too, but my wish is that there is some joy and hope to be found in these pieces also.
