Up All Night
I was up all night, and watched the shadows become velvet blankets as the world outside closed around itself. There were no stars visible, only the gentle rain making its long journey from the clouds. In the blue blackness, sound paints creatures with each rustle, and gives to my imagination the ability to create what is unthinkable by day. And I think of my early adulthood with conversations about all matters of absolute importance which the night, and visiting friends, and wine brought forth. And of pre-Mom times when I knew by 10 pm that the night energy was going to carry me like a woman on the River Styx through another all nighter in my studio.
This is my glaze pattern called Night Chi, night energy. It's my expression of the wisdom and treasures of that which is hidden from sight, and known to me by following dreams and mysteries. By following creative impulses into the unknown and uncharted landscape. And being willing to ditch my plans and schedule like a boring date, and sneak out with Night Chi.
