small tales

a Lightworks blog

There’s a story woven around the origination of every piece of artwork; here are some small tales about the ongoing journey of their creation…

the book of answers, my I Ching based blog, is here.

    small tales


    Whatever the medium, when I create something there’s inevitably a bit of a yarn around it.

    So this blog, which has had many and varied ~ and some might say fairly erratic
    and technically tormented ~ incarnations , is hereby reborn as small tales.

    Here I’ll share the stories behind and above what I’m creating; after focussing
    on curating Animus ~ Art for the World Soul, for the last couple of years, I’m now
    relishing the renewed focus on using imagination as a path to spirit myself.

    For me, part of the process of keeping this pathway open is to image my dreams each day. (okay, most days :)
    This one-minute time-lapse, of which I intend to do many more, illustrates a recent flying dream
    in which the branches of a vast tree form a platform from which I can take off and land.

    Below is a previous blog venture:

    I made on Tumblr from 2015-2016 before
    I returned to the way back here…
