Tonight the moon and I had a glass of red wine, the first for me in a long time. We sat chatting about life, the universe and which star was doing what. The fairies and the hair monkeys, the visa’s and the wine. The wine was very special, see it is a South African brand and yet the bottle stated that it had been imported by a Californian company. Guess it comes from having too many wine farmers in the family, that and friends (can never know too many wine farmers!).
After a while the moon said I should try something new, play a bit, free my mind and explore once more. I went and grabbed my camera and started snapping while sipping.
<– There is my A… they’re always dancing, perhaps you can spot the original moon, he was so cute, way cuter than a chimp I can tell you!
Writing with moon ink is is much like trying to write with a really soft paintbrush dipped in really diluted oils, messy. So I started practicing and finally graduated from the A’s tonight. Alas, as always, I got bored and so started creating shapes and drawing pretty pictures in the sky.
I am by no means an expert moon ink painter but I think I’ve found the perfect medium for me to play with. Something new, something fresh, something only the mind can really see, perfect for me.
Getting my eye in vs standing still while the gale force wind blew along with moving the camera to a certain pattern proved challenging to say the least but I think I started to get the hang of it.
The first was meant to be a dancer only this one ended up capturing a star – perhaps this is all in my mind, perhaps it is not…
I love abstracts so thought I’d throw a curve ball into the mix… in the photo below there are so many images that flood my mind, symbols, shapes, all sorts… what do you get? If at first you get nothing flip it around in your mind, personally I think the moon was playing tricks on me!
The moon and I have now set a date for tomorrow night as well, I can’t wait to spend some time with him again, he calms my soul and sparks the light within me.
