Dance With Death

1,300.00

This piece came from three different places: the loss of a loved one, the Virginia spring, and 'Pilgrim at Tinker Creek' by Annie Dillard. I lost a loved one during the spring here in VA in early 2015, when this piece germinated. I was reading 'Pilgrim at Tinker Creek' and Dillard's acute observations of the natural life cycle in VA felt comforting and deeply relevant. The shadow of temporariness underlying all beauty is what makes it stand out, gemlike. This remains true, even as we become accustomed to loss.
