Today I’ve been Occupying My Mind.
I’ve transformed our main bedroom into a magical space, where we can lie back and dream, day or night.
It’s been fun. Moving a chest of drawers, draped with a shawl, to a corner; setting Morroccan lamps and jewellery casket on top. Voiles at the window, a rug by the bed, gold curtain over the door – disparate elements, collected over time, finally coming together. it’s perfect.
I’ve been so absorbed in Creating, that my day is almost done. It’s late now, we’ve still to eat and I’ve nothing prepared for Occupy Blogosphere Thursday, altough I have been thinking about it.
It’s important for me to participate in Soul Dipper’s movement to lighten the world, via the Blogoshpere. So, as my contribution this week, I’d like to introduce:
The Artist created this fantasy warrior, many years ago, when we were living in our first home together. Using two-part poly/resin compound (which he’d bought to repair a cracked cylinder block on a car,) he moulded each piece individually, before assembling and painting with acrylic.
Wherever we live, this gruesome defender stands guard at the entrance – hence his title.
Art, ingenuity and talisman, all in one: The Guardian
Every Thursday we OCCUPY this space, giving this planet a shot of fun, support and positive energy. To learn more about this movement, or to join in, please visit Souldipper’s Blog
p.s. there’s more of The Artist’s work shown on my other blog Tao of Scrumble
