The Hungry Gap: A time to Keep Silence, and a Time to Speak
Dear friends, it is time for me to close the gardens and open the art studio. This means putting The Hungry Gap on hold until next spring.
Surely, you say, this goes against everything we are told about successful and effective blogging . . . and you are right. You might, therefore, conclude that such an interpretation of success and effectiveness are not of great concern to me. And you would be right again.
In my recent posts, I have focused on seasonality in the garden and in the kitchen. But this is only one aspect, one small aspect, of seasonality. As the prophet said, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. . . “. . . which, to me, means that one’s entire life can be lived at this level, listening and listening, following the seasons of the heart, following the flow of energies within and without.
Walking along, spontaneously present, without expectation or fears, I go now into semi-seclusion . . . until spring . . . for there is “a time to keep silence, and a time to speak.” For the next while, it is a time for silence: the silence of the studio, the silence of painting, and the silence of silence itself.
Farewell, for now!
